The newly-enacted NY State Budget will be making substantial cuts and changes to the Medicaid program. The most significant change is that, beginning October 1, 2020, there will be a 2 1/2 year "look back" for applications for Community Medicaid services, including Home Care. Transfers of money or property during the "look back" will result in a period of ineligibility. Currently, there is no "look back" for Community services, and this change will have a very negative financial impact on many applicants and their spouses.


The Budget also makes significant changes to the Consumer Directed Personal Assistance Program (CDPAP), which allows Community Medicaid recipients to use family members, friends, or other personally-selected caregivers for personal care at home, and have them paid by Medicaid. The changes to CDPAP will make it more difficult to apply for, and obtain, these services.


This information session will discuss these and other upcoming changes to New York's Medicaid program, and how they will impact your clients and their families. He will then provide important insights into the strategies that Elder Law firms will be using to deal with these issues, and on the guidance you will want to provide for your clients.


Learn how to inform and guide your clients – time is of the essence. They have only 5 months to create and execute a plan before the new, more restrictive provisions are scheduled to go into effect.



Topics that will be discussed:

  • Changes to the Community Medicaid/Home Care program
  • Changes to CDPAP personal care program
  • Other related changes
  • How and when the roll-out of these changes is likely to occur
  • How best to guide your clients
