PLAN of CT offers a Pooled Trust
The PLAN Pooled Trust is the only OBRA93 trust in CT that can be used by an individual over age 65. The PLAN Pooled Trust, also known as a "(d)(4)(c) Trust" is designed to allow an individual to fund a trust account with their own assets, retain a lifetime benefit from those assets, and still qualify for Medicaid.
A Pooled Trust arrangement offers an alternative to simply spending down or transferring assets to qualify for Medicaid. Medicaid eligibility criteria still apply, but by utilizing the PLAN Pooled Trust arrangement, individuals can retain a lifetime benefit from their assets and still qualify for Medicaid. Once an individual qualifies for Medicaid, the trust funds can be used to purchase supplemental items and services not otherwise covered by this government entitlement program.
Further, upon the beneficiary's death any residual funds are either held in a charitable account in the Pooled Trust for the benefit of other individuals with disabilities or paid back to the State for reimbursement.
