There is an important exception to the typical Medicaid transfer rules (Deficit Reduction Act (“DRA”), 42 U.S.C. 1396p) which allows parents to transfer assets to trust for a disabled child and still qualify for Medicaid immediately. Read here to learn more about this exception and the Medicaid rules generally. This is an often missed Medicaid asset protection strategy used by experienced Elder Law Attorneys in Pennsylvania (PA) and other states. This planning can protect hundreds of thousands of dollars of assets and serve to insure that the disabled child can lead a safe and secure life while still qualifying for necessary public and private benefits.
