For Individuals in Nursing Homes Applying for Medicaid, When Do Limits on Transfers of Assets Go Into Effect?
Estate of Marcella Atkinson v. Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, Case no. 2013-1773
Fifth District Court of Appeals (Knox County)
Does federal Medicaid law allow the unlimited transfer of assets, such as a house, from an institutionalized spouse to the other spouse after applying for Medicaid coverage but before eligibility is decided?
Do Ohio regulations permit the same unlimited transfer of assets before Medicaid eligibility?
