The Florida Medicaid Institutional Care Program (ICP nursing home benefits) imposes a three prong test in order to qualify for benefits. Each of these prongs have their own tests within their own right. The initial "test" is to determine whether or not the individual seeking Medicaid benefits requires the appropriate level of care in a skilled nursing facility. This test is referred to as a "CARES" Assessment. Assuming the person "passes" this test, the Agency will then look at the individual's income stream and asset levels.

Note: Regardless of a persons Income or Assets and without any pre-planning anyone in the state of Florida can qualify for Nursing Home Medicaid with the assistance of a Medicaid Attorney.
