The process of applying for Medicaid through the Title 19 program can be a confusing, complicated task that is often accompanied by frustration. You may not understand what the caseworker is looking for or what the eligibility rules are. The asset limits for Title 19 eligibility are very strict and vary from program to program. Many applicants find it difficult to determine what the state of CT will or will not count towards the program’s asset limit. For applicants who are married, the rules that determine how much a couple can keep are even more complicated. So, it’s important to talk with a Medicaid application professional who is knowledgeable about the program you are applying for. Even if you are not yet eligible, knowing what you can keep allows you to better plan for the future, so you can spend your money wisely, and apply at the optimal time.
