Case of the Week 11/22/06

County: Wetzel
Client's Age: 78

Client's husband is applying for Nursing Home Medicaid, and NH is asking for financial information from client to complete the application. Client and husband, however, have been estraned and legally separated for over 30 years. Client was concerned about whether Medicaid Estate Recovery could apply to her home. We explained the federal right of spousal refusal in NH Medicaid law permits client to refuse to cooperate and therefore keep her home out of the consideration entirely.
