Many real estate agents are unaware that if their clients are transferring property to a family member, or selling property to pay for the expense of nursing home care, it may actually prevent Medicaid qualification and asset protection.
Elizabeth D. Mitchell will review the rules for qualifying for long-term care Medicaid—a program that will pay for the cost of nursing home, assisted living, and limited home health care for seniors. This course is designed to provide real estate professionals with the knowledge to understand the Medicaid look-back period, the effect of giving away property or adding joint owners to property, estate recovery, and other key Medicaid concepts. If you work with seniors or have had any issues with clients selling property to pay for the cost of a nursing home, this course will explain the Medicaid rules and provide useful tools so that you can help your clients.
