The Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1993 established the provisions for Qualified Income Trusts, otherwise known as Miller Trusts. This summer, New Jersey’s Department of Human Services, Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services, sought federal approval for individuals in need of long term care to use these trust devices in order to attain Medicaid eligibility for the following living arrangements: nursing facilities; assisted living; home and community-based services. Implementation of Miller Trusts is expected to begin Dec. 1, 2014.
