Medicaid penalty divisor increases effective 9/1/12

9-1-2012 - The monthly penalty divisor for Florida Medicaid benefits increases from $6,880.00 to $7,362.00 effective September 1, 2012. When an uncompensated transfer has been made during the lookback period, the dollar amount of the transfer is divided by the divisor to determine the length of the penalty period, i.e., the length of time the applicant will be ineligible for benefits.
