Remaining Eligible For Medicaid And Other Benefits
If you or your child was injured by the negligence of a medical professional or any other party, you may be eligible to receive compensation. A personal injury or medical malpractice settlement, however, can have a significant effect on the injured individual's ability to receive government benefits.
This is where special needs trusts come into play. A special needs trust can allow you or your child to remain eligible for Medicaid and other benefits. It works by placing the settlement money into a special fund that can be used for education, transportation, nursing care, and many other services and goods that the government does not cover.
