Course Description

The Medicaid program, while extremely generous, can be complicated to qualify and apply for. The differences in qualifying for Community Medicaid vs. Institutional Medicaid can cause confusion and delay. Asset transfers and asset protection differ greatly between these two different types of Medicaid and having a solid understanding of the rules will help to best serve clients. 

This course, presented by Elder Law attorney Melissa Negrin-Wiener, offers an in-depth look at the basics of Medicaid eligibility and application as well as planning techniques. For beginning practitioners and those entering the field of elder law, this course outlines the general rules and processes involved in qualifying and applying for Medicaid benefits.

  2. Examine the laws governing Medicaid eligibility in home care and institutional settings
  3. Review some of the classic asset protection tools used by elder law practitioners
  4. Identify the more complex obstacles encountered during the Medicaid eligibility and application process
