Do the Medicaid rules ever change?
The only thing about Medicaid that you can count on is that the rules will change. In fact, Wisconsin implemented dramatic and sweeping changes mandated by the federal government, effective January 1st of 2009. Medicaid is a federal program that is further regulated at both the state and local level. The rules are constantly in flux, which requires constant monitoring by your professional advisors, especially when there is a time-lapse between when the plan is designed, and when you become qualified. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you review the plan at least once a year, and have a final review scheduled one or two months prior to the projected qualification date.
Please note: Wisconsin Medicaid law is due to change on July 1, 2014.
