Call (248) 213-9514 if you or a loved one need help with Medicaid benefits.

Confirming Your Eligibility for Medicaid

Medicaid was created for low-income families. While the program is meant to help people, the government’s fear of fraud has resulted in an outrageous qualifications process that requires applicants to go through a lot of work to prove they are an eligible candidate. If your total assets are estimated over $12,500 or, if married, $25,000 then the application process is going to be more complex. If your income is over the eligibility requirements for Medicaid, there are several legal strategies you can use to receive the benefits anyway.

Some strategies for qualifying for Medicaid include:

  • Setting up an irrevocable trust that will reduce the applicant’s countable assets and protect them for future use.
  • Transferring money to a spouse when the applying spouse needs to move into a nursing home.
  • Setting up a Qualified Income Trust that can be used to pay medical bills and will be forfeited to the government after the applicant’s passing.
  • Establishing an annuity that will provide a healthy spouse receives monthly payments from an insurance company while the applicant spouse receives nursing home care under Medicaid.
  • Spending excess assets by paying off debts, making home renovations, and other large spending investments that can be passed on to beneficiaries in a will or trust.
