Special Miller Trust To Qualify for Medicaid

A Miller trust or assigned income trust is a type of trust that qualifies a Medicaid applicant for Medicaid if he or she has too much income. Eligibility revolves around your level of assets, income and medical need. A Miller trust funnels income of the applicant into the trust and then apportions out living expenses to the trustee.
