Medicaid Life Settlement
A Medicaid Life Settlement is the conversion of an in-force life insurance policy into a pre-funded, irrevocable Benefit Account that is professionally administered with payments made monthly on behalf of the individual receiving care. This option extends the time a person would remain private pay and delays their entry onto Medicaid. The policy transaction is specifically designed to conform to the secondary market regulations that govern life settlement/viaticals, and the Benefit is administered specifically to be a Medicaid qualified spend-down of the asset proceeds.
By obtaining the fair market value for the life policy, and then at the direction of the policy owner putting the funds into an irrevocable bank account which can only be administered third-party to pay for Medicaid/Medicare qualified long term care services; the Medicaid Life Settlement is a regulated and Medicaid qualified financial vehicle to help cover the costs of long term care.
