Real People, Real Changes

Patricia Charles

“Best program ever”

I’ve had aides in the past, but it always ended badly. This is one of the best programs ever. I’m so happy that my niece is helping me.

Richard Branker

“Mom is getting stronger, and it feels so good”

We brought in a couple of aides for my mother, but I could tell she wasn’t happy. Now I get to care for Mom daily — and she’s smiling and laughing. I feel really good, knowing she’s getting stronger each day.

Elizabeth Salley

“Her face lit up!”

It was hard, because I didn’t want to leave my mom at home – I was scared she’d leave the stove on or get hurt. And you only get one mother. Now I get to have a job AND care for my mom at once. It’s literally PERFECT.

If you have Medicaid, you can apply

Do you have this Medicaid card?

FreedomCare is a Medicaid program, so your caregiver will be paid through Medicaid. (Unfortunately, Medicare is NOT enough under current government regulations.)

Hire a family member or friend to care for you — and Caregivers get paid every week – guaranteed!

We pay on time, every time.

Get Paid to Take Care of a Family Member 

The Missouri Medicaid Home Care initiative allows consumers to choose and hire their own personal caregiver. This includes friends and family members (as long as they are not the patient’s spouse). Which means….You can care for a family member and get paid!

No one can take care of you like family or close friends. To them your health is more than just a job. Of course, you don’t want to be a burden to your loved ones. That’s where the Medicaid Home Care Program comes in. After you enroll, your chosen caregiver will get paid for taking care of you.

You must use a Fiscal Intermediary to ensure your chosen caregiver gets paid. Freedomcare is the leading fiscal intermediary in the state and will help guide you through the process.
