Establishing a Medicaid pooled income trust is often the best way to qualify for Medicaid home-care services while sheltering the portion of one's income that exceeds the maximum income allowed set by Medicaid. This "surplus" or "excess" income, which may be quite modest, is commonly referred to as "spend-down". Medicaid requires individuals to appropriately spend down the portion of their income above the Medicaid limit before accessing Medicaid benefits. This often proves challenging. Attorney Peter Kempner, of the Volunteers of Legal Services (VOLS), will provide guidance and suggestions concerning how best to proceed in those cases where these problems and constraints arise.
