How does the Deficit Reduction Act Affect Your Family?

President Bush signed the Deficit Reduction Act (DRA) into law in February 2006. This law has affected the eligibility rules of those who make transfers for Medicaid planning. There are also time sensitive "look-back periods" and "penalty periods" that must be considered. It is important to choose an attorney who can help you with all aspects of your elder law needs.
