For a Person on Medicaid, What is the Personal Needs Allowance?

When an individual’s on medicaid here in the state of Florida, all of your income goes as a copay to the facility, except for a couple things. The first would be the premium payment for your medicare supplement or the premium payment for prescription drug coverage. The other thing is, is the personal needs allowance, which at this point in time, is $105.00 a month, and you can use that $105.00 a month for whatever purposes that you need. That’s the personal needs allowance. Contact our firm if you have any questions!
