The Medicaid landscape is constantly changing and the eligibility and application process has become more challenging than ever.  From the number of home care hours an individual is approved for to securing Medicaid for an alleged incapacitated person, the elder law practitioner must overcome obstacles on a daily basis which, in the past, required very little or no explanation.  

This course, presented by Elder Law attorney Melissa Negrin-Wiener, offers both a refresher on the basics of Medicaid eligibility and application as well as a review of intricate planning techniques that have evolved over time. For experienced practitioners and those entering the field of elder law, this course outlines a realistic approach to handling some of the more problematic situations that arise when working through the Medicaid process.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Examine the laws governing Medicaid eligibility in home care and institutional settings

  2. Review some of the classic application techniques used by elder law practitioners

  3. Understand the more complex obstacles encountered during the Medicaid eligibility and application process

  4. Analyze the sophisticated techniques used to overcome the more difficult Medicaid eligibility and application challenges
