As required by the federal Deficit Reduction Act, changes were made to the eligibility rules for long term care beginning January 1, 2012. New rules about property transfers and penalties affect anyone going into a skilled care nursing facility, supportive living facility or receiving in-home care supports to allow the person to remain in their home. Additional changes took effect July 1, 2012 as a result of the Saving Medicaid and Resources Together (SMART) Act, Public Act 97-0689. Applicants apply through the local DHS Family Community Resource Center (FCRC).
