“So some of the penalties that can be involved in improper Medicaid planning
are that you can really hit a disqualification period, where you basically
may be up against a disqualification period that goes for years. Because if
you do something like give away assets and then you can’t get them back or
they got spent by a family member, or you sold your house and gave the
proceeds to your kids, those types of penalties, the penalty periods can be
quite extensive. There are ways to offset that, however, if you do it
before you apply. So you want to make sure that you contact a Medicaid
planning attorney before you make application, not after, because once that
disqualification period is applied, it is difficult to undo it.”
