Understanding Medicaid eligibility requirements

Many residents of Georgia who are eligible for Medicare frequently do not understand either the nature of the program or the eligibility requirements. Medicaid is a federally funded plan that provides medical care for individuals and families whose annual net income does not exceed limits specified by the state of Georgia.

Special needs trusts in Georgia

Georgia families that include a person with special needs have a variety of government plans that provide several types and amounts of financial assistance. Some of these programs have financial limits on eligibility, which means that many people who would benefits from the plans are financially disqualified because their income or assets exceed the limits for the plan. Medicaid is one of the most notable examples of how such limits work to deprive otherwise eligible individuals of the benefits of such plans.

Special needs planning should have a tailored trust

Many families in Georgia have a person who needs to be cared for because of illness or disability. While good care might be provided while there are parents and guardians to make sure of it, a common concern is what might happen to the person if he or she is left alone without someone to make those decisions and oversee the care.
