At KTS, we get it. We understand what you’re going through. You’ve decided that home care is the best option for your parent or grandparent. But it’s not easy to qualify for the federal and state government benefits you need to make it a reality. That’s where we can help.
Who we are
KTS Pooled Trust offers a Supplemental Needs Pooled Trust, also known as a Medicaid Pooled Trust, to the elderly and people with disabilities in the state of New York. The KTS Pooled Trust was established to help disabled individuals maintain their quality of life while remaining in their communities. This type of trust is permitted by law under rigid rules and requirements and helps keep more loved ones at home, benefiting from assisted living. We work hard to gain eligibility for Medicaid Home Care Benefits on your behalf through the management of income and expenses.
How KTS Pooled Trust works:
This Medicaid pooled trust may be the answer to qualify for government benefits and stay home.
To qualify for Medicaid, excess income has to be paid to Medicaid. To receive Medicaid government benefits, any monthly income deemed to be “excess Income” has to be paid to Medicaid or the MLTC. This is also called a “surplus” or “spend down.” This spend-down requirement often leaves an individual receiving Community Medicaid without sufficient funds to pay for daily living expenses.
A Pooled Trust is used to pay expenses on a member’s behalf. In many cases, a Medicaid Pooled Income Trust is the solution to this dilemma. Funds that are deposited into a Pooled Trust can be used to pay expenses on the member’s behalf. KTS Pooled Trust ensures that those in need of Community Medicaid receive the home health care they need while being able to remain in their own homes.
