What Is the Lookback Period For Medicaid In Florida?



What is the look back period for Medicaid and Florida? It is five years. So whenever an application is made for Medicaid, you must indicate whether or not any conveyances transfers have been made for less than full and fair consideration. I believe the threshold amount is $500. As far as the value of any gifts or transfers that have been made, if any had been made during the five year period, well then it may, it will disqualify the applicant for a certain period of time, which is developed by dividing into the amount the cost of the Medicaid benefits. So, the five year period is five years. And in Florida, as far as Medicaid's concern, and any questions about Medicaid will give me a call (727) 847-2288.
