Pittsburgh Medicaid Eligibility & Planning Lawyer
Obtaining Medicaid eligibility can seem like a confusing and daunting task for adult children and spouses. Medicaid is a need-based program administered by the Department of Public Welfare of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, using funding from the federal government and Pennsylvania. Medicaid is subject to changes in the law by Congress -- such a change was recently enacted with the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005.

How the Deficit Reduction Act Affects You
President Bush signed the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 in an effort "to slow the pace of spending growth in both Medicare and Medicaid." The signing of the Act has resulted in complications to obtaining Medicaid and Medicare coverage. Among these changes are new restrictions on transferring assets to qualify for Medicaid long term care and nursing home care. In March of 2006, attorney Carol Sikov Gross was one of the first attorneys to recognize the consequences of these new laws. In addition to helping clients understand these consequences, she has lectured to many groups and has taught at seminars teaching her fellow attorneys about these new laws.
