Medicaid is a joint Federal and State program that serves as a safety net for seniors who need assistance with long-term care. Long-term care services include help with everyday tasks - 'activities of daily living'; services that are not covered by health insurance or Medicare. While Medicaid provides long-term services to those with chronic disabling conditions, it is only available for individuals who meet income and other eligibility requirements (U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, 2015). Paying for custodial care services out-of-pocket is out of reach for the average person. According to the HHS Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation Office of Disability, "While most people with LTSS needs will spend relatively little on their care, about one in six (17%) will spend at least $100,000 out-of-pocket for future LTSS."
You may have a loved one who is in need of long-term care, now or in the near future; you may be called upon to begin the Medicaid application process on his or her behalf. You may not be aware that the eligibility requirements for Medicaid in the state of Connecticut are stringent, especially when it comes to assets and income. Many rules and regulations govern Medicaid eligibility.
