*DISCLAIMER – The new rules have only been adopted by Kentucky Department for Medicaid Services in early and mid-2010 and are quite complex. It is possible that they may be changed, or interpretations may be further refined and revised by the government between now and when your particular Medicaid eligibility case is determined. It is not possible for me to assure you that the strategies described in this material will be effective in the future. It may also turn out, because of changes in the law or interpretations of existing law, that other planning strategies which you can pursue at this time may prove to be more advantageous than the strategies suggested. Thus, you should understand that although this represents a discussion of the law at this time, there is a risk that the information may be rendered ineffectual, or of limited benefit, by future legislation or interpretations. You should understand that while it is certainly prudent for you to obtain professional guidance and advice, the benefits or possible risks associated with the plan rest entirely with you.
