WHAT IS A POOLED COMMUNITY TRUST AND HOW DOES IT HELP KEEP NEW YORKERS IN THEIR HOMES? By Anthony J. Enea

A

pooled community trust is regularly utilized to prevent the spend down of income by the recipient of Home Care Medicaid. It is a specific type of Special Needs Trust (SNT). An SNT allows a person with a disability to continue receiving government benefits, such as Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), irrespective of the dollar value of assets and income held by the SNT. The purpose of the SNT is to supplement (not supplant) the benefits paid by the government to help improve the quality of the life of the person with the disability. The legal requirements for an SNT in New York are delineated in Estates, Powers and Trusts Law of New York (EPTL) §7-1.12. Unlike other forms of SNT’s, the pooled community trust has no age limitation and has no payback to the government requirements (such as a self-settled SNT). However, the funds held in the pooled trust at the time of the beneficiary’s passing remain in the pooled trust and may not be paid to the beneficiary’s estate or family. If the Pooled trust chooses not to keep said remaining funds, they must be paid to Medicaid up to an amount equal to the total amount of medical assistance paid on behalf of the beneficiary by Medicaid. As such, it is recommended to use the funds deposited to the pooled trust on a monthly basis. The pooled community trust is established and managed by a not-for-profit association that acts as the Trustee of the Trust; a trust company must also act as a Co-Trustee. As a pooled community trust can have numerous beneficiaries, a separate sub-account is created and maintained for the sole benefit of each disabled beneficiary. Any person, irrespective of their age (even over age 65), can establish and fund the pooled trust, however, there may be Medicaid and/or SSI transfer of asset penalties for those over age 65. The most frequent utilization of a pooled community trust occurs when an applicant for Community (home care) Medicaid has income in excess of the amount permitted by Medicaid. For example, for the year 2019, an applicant for Medicaid is permitted monthly income in the amount of $879.00. If the applicant has income of $2,000.00 per month, the excess income of $1,121.00 is paid to Medicaid assuming the applicant does not enroll in a pooled community trust or has monthly medical expenses in the amount of the sur-

plus. However, once enrolled in the pooled community trust, the surplus income less the monthly administrative fee paid to the not-for-profit can then be used to pay for the disabled person’s living expenses, such as, food, rent, taxes, mortgage, clothing, telephone, utilities, private pay care services, etc. Without the ability to enroll in the pooled community trust, most disabled seniors would not be able to retain their monthly income and continue to reside at home and receive Medicaid Home Care. It is a critical component in allowing seniors to receive Home Care Medicaid and be able to utilize their income for their needs. Additionally, the pooled community trust can be of use and advantage to a disabled

younger person with special needs. For example, a disabled younger person may be a beneficiary of SSI and Medicaid. If said person were to receive an inheritance, an accident settlement or recovery, or accumulates too much income which would otherwise disqualify them from SSI and/or Medicaid, the use of the pooled community trust may be of significant advantage to them. Depending on the facts for each disabled person, they may be able to receive the inheritance, settlement, recovery and/or excess income while continuing to receive SSI and/or Medicaid. Said funds and/or income can be deposited into the pooled trust and be used for the disabled person’s living expenses as delineated above. In conclusion, there are presently over 20 not-for-profit organization in New York that offer pooled trusts. The assistance of an experienced elder law attorney in selecting a suitable pooled trust not-for-profit and enrolling in a pooled trust can be invaluable.

TECHNOLOGY, TRANSFORMING HEALTH CARE

elehealth technology has transformed health care by increasing patients’ access to care, particularly for specialty services that are not always readily available. As valuebased care models expand, providers have an opportunity to integrate telehealth services, like remote patient monitoring and store and forward technology, into their practices to improve access and efficiency. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently issued a final rule that allows Medicare Advantage plans to offer additional telehealth benefits to its beneficiaries, beginning in plan year 2020. These additional telehealth benefits will enable patients to receive health care services from home. Because patients increasingly expect to receive high-quality health care from the comfort of their home, providers must ensure that they can deliver telemedicine care in compliance with evolving federal and state laws governing telemedicine. Bleakley Platt’s health care lawyers represent diverse health industry clients in Westchester and beyond on a myriad of legal and regulatory issues related to telehealth, such as: • Licensure • Privacy • Patient Rights and Consent • Medicare, Medicaid and commercial reimbursement • Prescribing • Compliance with fraud and abuse laws • Tax implications • Corporate matters As telehealth technologies often outpace regulatory developments, our health care practice group offers current expertise and practical advice to help clients manage risks. Robert Braumuller is the head of Bleakley Platt’s Health Law Practice Group and co-chair of the Corporate Law Practice Group. In the health law area, he represents hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers and other health care facilities, physician groups and various health care professionals in health care fraud and abuse and regulatory matters such as the Stark Law, anti-kickback statute, Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement, managed care contracting, HIPAA and the implementation of corporate compliance programs. Paulette Wunsch is a member of the Firm’s Health Care, Litigation and Corporate Practice Groups. She has previously held positions such as general counsel,

NEW YORK MEDICAL COLLEGE TAKES NEW APPROACHES TO HEALTH SCIENCE EDUCATION

N

ew York Medical College’s (NYMC) School of Health Sciences and Practice (SHSP) brings health care to life, offering hands-on experiential training that complements its exceptional clinical and educational programs-turning students into health care professionals with the experience and confidence to hit the ground running. Offering degrees in public health, physical therapy, speech-language pathology, biostatistics and epidemiology, as well as advanced certificates in critical public health areas, our focus is on educating students to change and improve health and health care quality in communities­—locally, regionally and globally. “Opportunities abound for experience and collaboration in all of our programs, along with the chance to do important research that can lead to real change,” says Robert W. Amler, M.D., M.B.A., dean of the School of Health Sciences and Practice and vice president of government affairs.

Offering degrees in public health, physical therapy, speech-language pathology, biostatistics and epidemiology, as well as advanced certificates in critical public health areas, our focus is on educating students to change and improve health and health care quality in communities­—locally, regionally and globally.

Located on a beautiful suburban 54-acre campus in Westchester County, NYMC’s is convenient to New York City and the Hudson Valley, offering prime access to clinical sites and health care organizations. Sharing the NYMC campus with the School of Medicine, the Graduate School of Basic Medical Sciences, and the Touro College of Dental Medicine, our students enjoy state of the art facilities and equipment, an extensive health sciences library and a lively health sciences community with vast extracurricular offerings.

PUBLIC HEALTH

The Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) programs in enviornmental health science, epidemiology, health policy and management, behavioral sciences and health promotion, provides opportunities for students to engage in public health challenges through practicum and capstone projects. The Doctor of Public Health (Dr.P.H.) Program uses the extraordinary complexity of the New York metropolitan area to examine the socioeconomic determinants of health and the relationships between policies, regulations, market forces and ethics of health care delivery. Our Dr.P.H. graduates have the skills to oversee the financing and organization of resources; manage and improve delivery and access to health care services; conduct research to examine health care delivery; identify data required to support change; and develop and execute policy to improve health care outcomes.

ONLINE LEARNING

With one of the first online M.P.H. programs, NYMC is a leader in online health science education. Supported by an innovative e-learning team, SHSPonline M.P.H. students access the same courses taught by the same faculty as the on-campus program. It’s all the same benefits of the traditional program with the convenience of online learning.

WHEN IT’S YOUR TURN TO CARE: HERE’S HOW TO EASE YOUR WORRIES ABOUT AGING PARENTS

T

he aging process is inevitable. But seeing your parents go through it can be surprising, dismaying and even daunting. “Adult children may notice changes - subtle, or stark - in the way their parents live,” notes Rita Mabli, president/CEO of United Hebrew of New Rochelle, which provides an array of supportive care services to seniors, including home care, assisted living, Alzheimer’s and dementia care, skilled nursing and short-term rehabilitation. “It can be overwhelming to think about where to begin, especially when you notice signs that your parents are not as independent as they once were,” Mabli says. Health concerns contribute to your stress. So, where to begin? A good place to start is to know that you’re not alone. While the duration and level of long-term care will vary from person to person, nearly 70 percent of today’s seniors age 65 and older require some type of long-term

supportive health care services, according to the US Department of Health. Here are some other tips that may ease your worries: 1. Look for signs supportive care is needed: Be observant. Changes in appearance, in weight, personal hygiene and mobility are sometimes the easiest to spot. If visiting mom or dad at home, look for unopened mail, unpaid bills, fresh food and general cleanliness. Any dramatic changes may signal problems with mobility or memory. 2. Talk to the experts: You may benefit from speaking with a senior care advisor who will connect you to resources in the community. Eldercare experts can help families make financial, legal and health care decisions, way before a crisis arises. 3. Communicate with mom and/or dad: Share your concerns and respectfully ask how you can help. They may simply

need help with grocery shopping, cooking or managing their finances. Or, they may need to consider alternate living solutions. Either way, they will likely want to be as independent as possible in their decision making. 4. Make a plan: Visit senior care facilities before the need is dire. If your parent has a health event that necessitates an immediate need for care, selecting assisted living or long-term care in urgent situations is much

more stressful. Looking after aging parents can be challenging - but it doesn’t have to be, advises Mabli. “Be proactive, seek advice and learn about available community resources. That’s the best way to support a high quality of life for your loved ones.” Learn more about United Hebrew of New Rochelle’s campus!
