Texas Medicaid Nursing Home Eligibility / Asset Protection Services

Texas Medicaid Eligibility Requirements For Seniors

new

Texas Medicaid has limitations on the amount of assets a person may own and the amount of income a person can receive each month before they are eligible. Eligibility and services vary from state to state. Texas Medicaid planning is the process of utilizing and protecting assets within state and federal guidelines, in the event of a costly, long-term nursing home stay or an extended at home stay requiring long hours of care or around the clock care. It is the process of accessing all available benefits to minimize exposure of family assets to nursing home costs.

Not everyone meets the Texas Medicaid Eligibility Requirements. Do you?

Texas Medicaid Look Back Period.
Medicaid Asset Protection and Spend Down
What is Medicaid Asset Protection? Medicaid Asset Protection is planning for protection from Medicaid "spend-down" requirements, typically through legal maneuvering provided by irreversible trusts - recently outlawed by Congress except under very specific conditions. What is Medicaid Spend Down? Medicaid Spend Down is what you must do when you have too many resources. In other words, you have too much money and you have to “spend down” assets before you will be eligible for Medicaid coverage. Those excess assets are called the “spenddown” amount. Medicaid programs in Texas have income and asset limits that someone within a covered group must not exceed in order to qualify for the program. However, there are additional programs for those who exceed these limits but have special circumstances. MORE DETAILS >>
