Establishing a Miller Trust
For individuals residing in nursing homes, or who are receiving the Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) under a Medicaid waiver, the applicable income standard is $2,199 per month, amount effective January 1, 2015. Individuals who exceed this amount will no longer be eligible for Medicaid unless the individual has a valid Miller Trust.
A Miller Trust is a special legal arrangement for holding some of your income. This will allow you to put a specific amount into the Miller Trust so that your income is less than the standard in order to remain eligible for Medicaid.
If you think you need a Miller Trust in order to stay eligible for Medicaid, you may want to contact an attorney for advice on how to establish a Miller Trust.
