As a Buffalo Elder Law Attorney, people often ask me about the penalty for the five-year look-back period.
- Essentially if you’ve made any gifts in the past five years prior to applying for Medicaid, you will be penalized
- Gifts are those that are done in anticipation of going to a nursing home
Are you worried that you might have to pay Medicaid penalties? If so, contact the experienced Buffalo Elder Law Attorney Robert Friedman.
