Do You Have to Update Your Estate Plan if Your Spouse Needs Medicaid? Orlando, FL Attorney Explains

September 1, 2022
Geoff Hoatson

There is a reason to update your estate plan, but it's not to get eligible for Medicaid. Medicaid eligibility is generally not done through a state plan updates. The reason that you would want to update your estate plan is in the event that you died before your husband. If that happened, and your estate plan has not updated, very likely, the assets you leave behind will go to your husband, rendering him ineligible for Medicaid. By updating your estate plan. You can make sure that he has the benefits he needs and the money is still there to supplement what Medicaid is paying for. And then ultimately, whatever's leftover after that can then go to your children or your grandchildren.
