Medicaid penalty divisor increases

9-1-2015 - The monthly penalty divisor for Florida Medicaid long-term care benefits increased to $8,346.00 (was $7,995.00) effective Sept. 1, 2015.

If an otherwise eligible applicant for long-term care Medicaid benefits has made uncompensated transfers during the look-back period (currently five years), the total value of the transfers is divided by the penalty divisor to determine the penalty period - i.e., the number of months that the applicant will be denied benefits.
