this article, our Illinois elder law attorneys explain allowable transfers within the medicaid period. In order to qualify to have medicaid pay for your long-term care, you must have already “spent down” all of your own assets. One medicaid planning strategy is to transfer assets such as the family home to your children in order to qualify for medicaid without depleting your children’s inheritance. However, any transfers of assets for less than fair market value within 5 years prior to applying for Medicaid will result in a delay in your eligibility for Medicaid. This is called the 5 year look back period. There are some exceptions to this rule. Certain types of transfers may be made within the Medicaid 5 year look back period without delaying your eligibility for Medicaid benefits. Our Illinois elder law attorneys describe the exceptions to the Illinois Medicaid 5 year look back rule in this article.
