Medicaid’s “look back period” in Buffalo is a 60-month (five year) window during which financial transactions will be scrutinized in order to determine a person’s eligibility for benefits like nursing home care.
Medicaid has strict income and asset requirements, and financial transfers made during the look back period may be considered as part of your assets, making eligibility more costly.
There are appropriate ways to structure your wealth that can protect your assets while allowing you to get the care you need, even after transfers have been made in the look back period.
Don’t let your hard earned wealth be decimated by the high costs of nursing home care in the Buffalo area.
The attorneys at Friedman & Ranzenhofer can help you protect what’s yours, while having access to the health care options you need.
