Janssen Delivers Presentation on Medicaid Asset Protection

July 10, 2018

Stacey L. Janssen delivered a presentation on Medicaid Asset Protection at the National Business Institute on July 10, 2018.

"Medicaid is a welfare program established in 1965 and financed by federal and state funds to provide medical assistance to persons who do not have sufficient income or resources to pay for medical care. The Federal Department of Health and Human Services approves individual state plans for medical assistance to families, the poor, the disabled, and the aged. Administration of these plans is delegated to the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA). Each state then has a department or departments that implement the state’s Medicaid plan.). The source of federal law for Medicaid programs is found at Title 42 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), parts 430 and 456. In addition to federal law, each state has its own operating manual which codifies its state plan. Medicaid programs vary widely state to state. This is even more true with the proliferation of Medicaid waivers granted to states."
