Cozen O'Connor attorneys Ellen S. Morris and Howard S. Krooks, CELA, CAP discuss the impact of income restrictions on community spouses in this new, helpful and informative video with captions. A community spouse is the husband or wife of a Medicaid recipient who is institutionalized in a nursing home or assisted living facility. By law, there is a limit to the amount of income a community spouse can retain and still allow the institutionalized spouse to qualify for Medicaid. Sometimes, however, that limit is not enough to pay for the community spouse's expenses. That's where we come in.
Our attorneys have ways to increase the amount of income that community spouses can retain, including bringing court proceedings. Please watch Ellen and Howie here.
If you or a loved one is in this situation, you should know that there is something that you can do about it and we are here to assist and advise you.
For more information, please call 1-800-ELDERLAW or (561) 750-3850 or contact us to request a consultation today.
From Ellen, Howie and the entire Cozen O'Connor team, we wish you and your family a very healthy and happy holiday season and a spectacular 2022. Happy Holidays!
