Does Medicaid Reimbursement Take Priority Over Other Expenses?

The answer to this question is state-specific.  Some states allow special needs trusts to pay off private medical bills before reimbursement for Medicaid expenses, but others don\’t.  It\’s best to consult with a qualified special needs planner before paying any final expenses from a special needs trust, and you should certainly speak with a planner prior to reimbursing the state.  For a list of planners in your state, click here.
