New York State Senate Amends State Medicaid Program to Expand Transfer Penalty Rules to Community Home Care Services 

In an effort to reduce the annual New York State Medicaid budget of $70 billion, the State of New York has amended the law governing the State Medicaid program, to include new restrictions on people applying for home care services in the community.

Effective October 1, 2020, when a person applies for Medicaid home care services, they will be subject to a new 30 months (2 1/2 years) "look-back" or review, that will impose a waiting period for receiving home care services, if they have transferred away assets or income during the review period.  The new rule will be similar to the 60 month "look-back" and penalty rules currently imposed on applicants who are applying for Medicaid nursing home coverage.

This is a new program change and no other detials are available at this time - this page will be updated as more information about the implementation of this new rule becomes available.
