Medicaid: Ignorance of QIT Requirement No Excuse

Ignorance of QIT Requirement Does Not Excuse Failure to Comply. Nursing home resident’s son assisted with her October 25, 2007 Medicaid application. At the intake interview on November 7, 2007, he disclosed that he opened a QIT with $50. He did not fund it further by transferring her excess income into the trust until that meeting, after which he attempted to move income for prior months into the trust. Eligibility for September and October was denied because Petitioner’s income for those months exceeded the cap. Ignorance is no excuse. Petitioner could have consulted the Medicaid Manual or could have requested assistance from DFCS.
