How To Qualify For Medicaid (Transfer Of Income And/Or Assets)

Moving Out/Divorce

« Previous


If the household has too large an income, and there are two people in the household,  people who are married have been known to move and live in separate households (generally nearby with a friend or relative).  If the person who moves out is not part of the household, his or her income is not counted toward the Medicaid eligibility limit.

In some states, a divorce may be required to obtain eligibility.

It stands to reason that a tactic like this can have an enormous impact on the family. Two people living apart will naturally see less of each other - and of the children if any. Likely there are other personal disabvantages to this scenario as well.
