The window of opportunity is closing soon for elder law attorneys in New York to take advantage of generous Medicaid home care benefits for their clients. On October 1, drastic changes take effect that will severely limit access and eligibility, primarily by instituting a new 30-month lookback period for asset transfers and altering the standards for medical qualification.During this webinar, we will cover the most up-to-date information on the scheduled phase of the rules from the NYS Legislature and Department of Health, and the ramifications for both clients and attorneys. We will also outline strategies available through ElderDocx® to create short and long-term planning opportunities for New York Medicaid.
