IMPORTANT UPDATES TO MEDICAID 

 

Effective October 1st 2020

 

- There will now be a 30 month look back period for Community based Medicaid 

- Transfers made during this time will result in a penalty period during which the applicant will be ineligible for Medicaid Home Care.  

- Transfers made to certain exempt individuals (I.e. spouses) will not result in a penalty period.  

-No change to spousal refusal (the mechanism that allows the healthy spouse to retain income and assets despite the applicant receiving medicaid services). 

-Medicaid eligibility requires assistance with 3 ADLs (activities of daily living) unless the individual has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or Dementia (then they will only be required to need assistance in 1 ADL)
