STIC has partnered with Center for Disability Rights (CDR) to assist individuals with disabilities who have too much money to enroll in a Supplemental Needs Pooled Trust in order to qualify for Medicaid.
Qualifying individuals with disabilities can put money, usually the amount of their Medicaid Spend, into a special bank account, referred to as a Supplemental Needs Pooled Trust. The money put into this special account and is not counted as income or resources towards the Medicaid eligibility. Supplemental Needs Pooled Trust monies can be used towards an individual’s needs above and beyond what is covered by Medicaid.
