Dad is 87 in Massachusetts, has full MassHealth (Medicaid) with his "Frail Elder Waiver". Mom has basic MassHealth. Their monthly income combined is $2500... Dad was approved for A&A , his benefit is approximately $1900 per month and he's been receiving it for several months. He's also eligible for a lump-sum retroactive A&A payment of approx. $12k. My question is, actually questions: - Would he lose MassHealth/Medicaid the next time they review his file, since this A&A is not income, not taxable etc? - The A&A is not taxable income, correct? Not "income" at all, correct? Not correct? - The retroactive is also not taxable, not income either, and is a reimbursement for what Mom and Dad have paid out for his care and attendance...yes? no? The A&A is just SO confusing!!
