Improving The Lives Of Special Needs Families Through Supplemental Needs Trusts
It is rare that parents have the financial needs to fully care for a special needs loved one who requires around-the-clock care. In such cases, qualifying for Medicaid is vital to getting needed care. However, in order to stay on Medicaid, the special needs person must not have too many assets or income or they risk losing eligibility.
A Special Needs Trust Can Improve Quality Of Life
Fortunately, the law allows for a special needs trust, also known as a supplemental needs trust, to improve the quality of life of a special needs individual while preserving eligibility for Medicaid. This type of trust allows for assets and income to be used for education, outings and personal care not covered by Medicaid.
