126-A:4-b Medicaid Waivers.
The state shall enter into medicaid waivers from the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, subject in each case to a review by the oversight committee on health and human services, established in RSA 126-A:13, which shall make a report to the legislative fiscal committee which shall have final approval authority. The waivers shall:
(a) Allow the state to begin the penalty period of ineligibility for medicaid services due to transfers of assets for less than fair market value as of the date of application for medical assistance or as of the date that the applicant, but for the transfer of assets for less than fair market value, meets all of the criteria for eligibility for medical assistance, whichever is later.
(b) Allow the state to eliminate the resource ceiling for applicants for medical assistance and to exempt them from actions for recovery against their estates for the cost of medical assistance they receive when they have a long-term care insurance policy that meets the standards established by the legislature and the state.
