Medicaid: Another Case without a Qualified Income Trust

No QIT, No Medicaid if Income Exceeds Cap, Part 2. Petitioner entered a nursing home in June 2008 and filed an application for Medicaid. DFCS did not receive or act on the application until July 22, 2008. As a result of inaction, Petitioner did not know that a QIT was needed because income exceeded the income cap. After discovery, Petitioner promptly contacted an attorney and established and funded a QIT. Nonetheless, denial of eligibility for prior months was affirmed there is o regulation that would allow an earlier effective date even if the applicant received no notice of the necessity of a QIT.
