2020 NYS BUDGET Makes Major Changes to Medicaid Home Care Effective October 1, 2020

Major changes were made to Community Medicaid with the passage of the 2020 NYS budget in April.  Currently, in order to qualify for Community Medicaid, which provides home care aides, an individual may only have $15,750 in total assets and income up to $875 per month and there is a one month “look back” period on the transfer of assets in order to get down to the $15,750 limit.
