Many people have confusion about Medicaid and Medicare. While both government programs, and similar sounding, they are actually entirely separate. Medicare provides for the health costs of older Americans, but it generally does not cover much in the way of long term care. However, Medicaid offers support, which can help fill that gap.
For those with qualifying financial need, Medicaid long-term services will potentially cover:
Assisted living facilities
In home care
Community based care
