ElderLaw Lexington wants you to better understand Medicaid eligibility


An advertisement for the upcoming workshops start by asking: Have you hear the three big lies about Medicaid eligibility?

“Lie #1: If you need a nursing home, Medicaid will take your house.”

The truth, according to the ElderLaw Lexington advertising, is that with proper legal planning they can’t and they don’t want to.

“Lie #2: If you transfer assets, you have to wait five years to qualify.” The truth is there is no such rule.

“Lie #3: You have to give up your assets to protect them.”

The truth is that you don’t have to give up control of your assets to protect them.


Issues about Medicaid eligibility will be addressed at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. at workshops on May 11, 18 and 23 at 1795 Alysheba Way, Suite 2102, Lexington.
