Elder Law attorneys excel in Medicaid regulations but may not have extensive tax law knowledge. Consequently, adhering to IRS guidelines regarding real estate gifting and trust transfers can lead to unforeseen repercussions for individuals seeking longterm care and Medicaid assistance. To ensure a smooth process, clients should seek advice from tax professionals and elder law attorneys before proceeding with any gifts or asset transfers.
For the last three years, due to the COVID emergency, TennCare was required to pause the redetermination process. This pause ended on March 31 and TennCare has begun the process which is known as “unwinding.” This means TennCare will be returning to the redetermination process and will be reviewing tens of thousands of individuals each month to see if they can keep their coverage. This session covers TennCare’s Redetermination process, tips to get through the process, and pitfalls that TJC has observed.
There are three requirements to qualify for TennCare: you have to be sick enough, your income has to be low enough (sort of), and the value of your assets has to be low enough. Panelists for this webinar explain these criteria and walk you through several scenarios to show you how the criteria work.
