Maine Legislators Consider Expanding Medicaid Reimbursement To Spouses Who Care For A Disabled Partner.

February 7, 2019

The Portland (ME) Press Herald (2/7, Lawlor) reports on new legislation that would allow Medicaid to reimburse Maine residents who care for their disabled spouses at home. The bill would allow the caregiving spouse to “be eligible to earn about $11 to $12 an hour.” The measure seeks to expand access to spouses because adult children or siblings are already “reimbursed for that work.”
