Can family members be paid for providing care to an elderly parent or relative without disqualifying them from long term care under medicaid?
Yes. When properly structured family members can be paid for providing such care without it appearing to be a gift which would disqualify the elderly person from mediciad. However, it must not be excessive, it should be properly documented under a care agreement that meets the requirements of Pennsylvania law and it is taxable as income for the receipient fo the payments.
