What is the look back period? – 844-292-1318 legal aid Birmingham Alabama

This question is about Medicaid and that is “what is the look back period?”

With Medicaid theres’a 5-year look back period. If you’re familiar with Medicaid, then you’re familiar with the 5-year look back period, and even if you aren’t, you probably have heard something about Medicaid looking back in time when you applied for Medicaid.

What is that look back period?

Think of it this way, if today is August 7, 2015, so if I applied for Medicaid today and I’m qualified for Medicaid, then they look back 5 years in time.

What are they looking for over here?

They’re looking for gifts.

What’s a gift?

A gift is where I’ve transferred something like money, property, whatever it may be. I’ve transferred something in an exchange I’ve not received the full fair market back. If it’s a ,000 boat and somebody pays me ,000 for it and it really has a value of 10,000 well that’s a gift of 8,000. If I just give it away and get zero in return, that’s a ,000 gift. This applies to bigger numbers too.

If I have a half million dollar house and I give that to my child and there’s certain exceptions that apply. We won’t go into all those exceptions, keep them the general for now, the high level of this law without getting bogged down in the details but if I give away half a million dollar house to a child, that’s a half million dollar gift. I apply and I qualify.

That’s critical.

To qualify now, you got to look back 5 years, 60 months and all this time period they’re saying, “What are the gifts that you have made?”
That’s what the look back period is. I believe our next question has to do with the penalty period but that is the look back. We apply the look back 5 years, and let me just say this, 1 implication of this is if, and i used this example last week, actually, I was training the lawyers all over the State of Alabama on Medicaid. I gave this example, what if 59 months ago, my client gave away 0,000 worth of assets and she’s qualified now. I could apply right now and get her on Medicaid.

Should I do that?

If I apply right now and I’m qualified right now and I look back 60 months, what will they going to see? Right here about month 59, they’re going to see she gave away 0,000.

There’s going to be a huge penalty.

To give you a real quick version of the penalty, you take whatever those gifts are, divide them by ,800, that’s what Medicaid says is about the price of a nursing home. Then you go forward in time and that is your penalty, so 580,000 gift. Remember, I made that 59 months ago. I apply to qualify now. They’re going to penalize me 100 months into the future. It’s like 8 years.

The key to understanding that look back is if you’re in a crisis situation right now and you’re trying to figure when do I apply right now?

In this particular situation, you wouldn’t apply right now. You would not apply the next month and go a little bit into the future so that when Medicaid looks back 5 years, they don’t see the 0,000 gift and, again, that’s not wrong. That’s just following their rules.

That’s the look back period.

You might not realize it, but The Bearded Man is surprisingly versatile. He’s equally at home chopping down a house-sized redwood by himself (to build a house-sized house of course) as he is lounging at midnight listening to mariachi bands play while sipping on ice-cold margaritas. Like Lost Frequencies, he is a master of his domain. These fine gentlemen want to know: “Are You With Me?”

Home Buying Pitfalls for Unmarried Couples – 844-292-1318 legal aid Vestavia Hills Alabama

Collier Swecker video blogs about a few issues that unmarried couples face when buying a home together. There are a few legal and economic issues that couples must look at before putting earnest money on their new home. When unmarried couples buy a home together they need to make sure that both of them are named on the mortgage and ensure that they have an understanding of each other’s finances in case of job loss, health problems or anything that will cause financial problems. Unmarried couples need to make sure that they have a game plan in case one of them cannot contribute to the financial responsibilities that come with home ownership, even if the problem may be temporary.

Is It Possible to be a Good Politician and a Good Man? Contemporary American Politics (2000) – 844-292-1318 legal aid Tuscaloosa Alabama

Is It Possible to be a Good Politician and a Good Man? Contemporary American Politics (2000)

Klein was born in Queens (Rockaway Beach), New York, the son of Miram (née Warshauer) and John Klein, a printer. His maternal grandfather was professional musician Frank Warshauer. He has referred to his heritage as Jewish.

Klein graduated from the Hackley School and the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in American civilization. In 1969 Klein began reporting for the Essex County Newspapers, and The Peabody Times in Peabody, Massachusetts In 1972 he reported for Boston’s WGBH, and until 1974 he was also the news editor for The Real Paper in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He was a contributing editor for Rolling Stone from 1975 to 1980, and Washington bureau chief from 1975 to 1977.[4] He became friends with actor–director Tom Laughlin after interviewing him for Rolling Stone and appeared briefly as a reporter in Laughlin’s 1977 film Billy Jack Goes to Washington.

Klein published Woody Guthrie: A Life in 1980 and Payback: Five Marines After Vietnam in 1984. He was a political columnist for New York from 1987 to 1992, winning the Peter Kihss Award for his reporting on the 1989 race for mayor of New York. In May 1992 he joined Newsweek and wrote the column “Public Lives,” which won a National Headliner Award in 1994. Newsweek also won a National Magazine Award for their coverage of Bill Clinton’s 1992 victory. From 1992 to 1996 he was also a consultant for CBS News, providing commentary.

In December 1996 he joined The New Yorker to write the Letter from Washington column. In 2000 he published The Running Mate, a sequel of sorts to Primary Colors. In March 2002 Klein published The Natural: Bill Clinton’s Misunderstood Presidency, an account of Clinton’s two terms in office.[4]

In January 2003, he joined Time to write a column called In the Arena on national and international affairs. It appears in Time’s upfront Notebook section and has been criticized for its reporting about then–minority leader Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic opposition to warrantless wiretapping. The column has been the source of several retractions by Time.

Klein is a regular blogger on time.com’s Swampland blog. In November 2007, Salon columnist Glenn Greenwald wrote about what he alleged were factual errors in a Klein story about the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). Klein reported that the Democratic version of the FISA bill “would require the surveillance of every foreign-terrorist target’s calls to be approved by the FISA court” and that it therefore “would give terrorists the same legal protections as Americans.”[9] Time later published a comment: “In the original version of this story, Joe Klein wrote that the House Democratic version of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) would allow a court review of individual foreign surveillance targets. Republicans believe the bill can be interpreted that way, but Democrats don’t.” Greenwald noted that the text of the legislation does not require court review of individual targets, and that Time’s response disregards this fact.[10][11] Klein’s response was, “I have neither the time nor legal background to figure out who’s right.”[12]

Later, Greenwald reported that Time “refused the requests of two sitting members of Congress … to correct Klein’s false statements in Time itself.”[13] Greenwald has reported that Senator Russ Feingold has been informed by Time that his letter rebutting Klein will be published in a forthcoming issue.[14][15]

In October 2012 Klein was criticized by Glenn Greenwald for revealing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe program his advocacy of U.S. drone strikes. Klein dismissed child deaths caused by drones in the countries where they are operating, stating that the bottom line in the end was to ask “whose 4-year-olds get killed? What we’re doing is limiting the possibility that 4-year-olds here will get killed by indiscriminate acts of terror.”[16]

In a June 2013 cover story for Time magazine, Klein reported on Oklahoma tornado relief, but came under fire for implying secular humanists did not help deliver aid.[17] Klein later clarified he only meant to refer to “organized” secular humanist groups,[18] a claim that was also contested and called inaccurate.[19][20]

In October 2014 Klein traveled to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, for his article in Time magazine titled “Shut down in Tuscaloosa.” Klein interviewed a small number of academics from the University of Alabama. Klein’s article came under fire from the focus group he interviewed due to allegations of misquotes, improper citations, and wrong names used in the interview.
