Elder Law Strategies: How To Keep Medicaid From "TAKING IT ALL"
Whether you are planning for your future long term care or confronting a loved one's current long term care, you can structure your legal documents, assets and income to use Medicaid's technical rules for you instead of against you. Some rules create opportunities that can be carried out over time, and others that can be implemented within a month. By knowing those rules, you can protect your assets and income from future Medicaid (Title XIX) exposure and even stop current Medicaid asset depletion. Learn how to develop the optimal plan whether you face long term care down the road or right now. Topics to be covered include: asset and income limits, spousal protections, converting exposed assets to exempt assets, avoiding transfer-of-asset penalties, use of trusts and annuities, targeted spend-down, qualifying despite being over-asset or over-income, and avoiding liens and recoveries.
