Here's my post on one main change in Medicaid law, due to the Federal Government's re-interpretation of how New York has been applying the rules for married couples where one spouse is in need of nursing home or home care: http://schlissellaw.wordpress.com/2009/01/27/only-5-weeks-left-for-married-couple-home-care-medicaid-applications/

Benjamin, thanks for pointing this out. We don't have very many planning or Medicaid clients who are receiving home care - the vast majority of our Medicaid practice deals with clients who are in skilled nursing facilities. Is home care more popular where you are downstate?
