Frequently Asked Questions?

It’s not surprising if you have a lot of questions about Medicaid.
It’s complicated. Here are a few of the questions we hear most often. 

While you do not need an elder law attorney to apply for Medicaid, the Medicaid rules are complex and difficult to understand. Hiring an elder law attorney comes with many benefits. For example, an elder law attorney can assist you in expediting Medicaid eligibility, on converting “countable resources” into “exempt resources”, or on the various ways you can leave a legacy to your children or grandchildren. The best way to thing to do would be to consult with an elder law attorney.  Some elder law attorneys, like myself, offer a free consultation.

Medicare only covers long-term care expenses in very limited situations and only for a very short period. Medicare is not long-term care insurance plan.

The 5 year look back rule refers to transfers (gifts) made by an individual or couple’s that can adversely affected Medicaid eligibility. Essentially, the Department of Job and Family Services (the administrating agency) will “look-back” five years from the date of the Medicaid application to determine whether any transfers were made.

The “healthy” spouse, commonly referred to as the “community spouse” is protected by the Spousal Impoverishment Rules which allows the community spouse to protect a portion of income and resources. For example, generally the community spouse is permitted to keep the home, furnishings, one (1) car and certain other assets, along with money in an amount ranging between $21,912 and $109,560.

This is a great time to take the next step.
