Iowa has two different Medicaid programs to assist residents in paying for medical care. One program serves people who need to reside in a nursing home. This is what most people think of when they think of Medicaid. The other program is called the “Elderly Waiver.” This program provides funding to pay for in-home medical assistance to people who need help but still live in their own homes or in independent or assisted living.
The eligibility requirements for each program is different, depending on whether you are married or not, live in your own home or not, etc. The rules for qualification are complex. It is often helpful to meet with an attorney who understands the Title 19 requirements and can help set up a plan to allow you to receive these benefits when you need them most. Whether you are in crisis, need to get qualified now, or are looking ahead to be prepared, Letsch Law Firm can help you plan. Proper planning is essential so that you do not do anything that would inadvertently disqualify you from eligibility for benefits.
