What is a Medicaid Pooled Income Trust?
A pooled income trust is a special type of trust that allows individuals of any age to become financially eligible for Medicaid home care services, even if their income is higher than the Medicaid guidelines. There is no limit on how much money you can deposit into the pooled trust.
This trust works best for people who have excess monthly income above the Medicaid eligibility requirements. The pooled trust allows people to protect this portion of their income, which Medicaid would otherwise require to be “spent down on medical needs”.
The income deposited into the pooled trust is not considered when determining Medicaid eligibility each month, thereby maintaining your Medicaid services. Funds in the pooled trust are then used to pay living and other expenses which allow you to remain in the community. Upon the beneficiary’s death, the remaining balance in the account is retained by the trust to support other people with disabilities.
