Medicaid Plays a Vital Role in Supporting Family Caregivers

More than 1 in 5 Americans are caregivers who provide vital assistance to family members, including children or adults with disabilities, aging parents, and more. These family caregivers play an essential role in ensuring and coordinating care for their loved ones.

Medicaid particularly impacts family caregivers by funding home and community-based services (HCBS) – essential support that enables patients to live independently in their homes and communities. Medicaid funds the majority (57%) of HCBS in the U.S., and these services encompass programs that address both medical and daily living needs.
