Medicaid Workshop


Navigating through the rules and regulations of Medicaid can be a stressful time. The application process itself can be one of the biggest hurdles. Fraser Trebilcock attorney Melisa Mysliwiec shared insights with other attorneys in a presentation, “Completing the Medicaid Application: a Hands-On Workshop,” delivered at the Institute for Continuing Legal Education’s 3rd Annual Elder Law Institute, on Sept. 15. The seminar provided attendees with a case study about a husband and wife, second marriage, navigating the long-term care process after the husband had a massive stroke requiring his admission to a nursing facility. Sample income and financial statements were provided and the attendees worked through a sample Assets Declaration. Finally, attendees worked through a sample spend down and completed a sample Medicaid Application. Pictured (l-r) Arthur L.
