Medicaid is a means-tested program. Administered by state and local governments under federal guidelines, Medicaid provides tax dollars to assist low-income people of every age with their medical and long term care bills. Medicaid has stringent income and asset requirements for eligibility, which include specific allowable methods for the transfer of assets. By complying with and meeting Medicaid criteria, individuals facing the need for long-term care may become eligible to receive government assistance without forfeiting their homes or depleting all of their assets.
