I qualified for MA as of Jan 1, 2014 and as I turn 65 in Dec, am now in a transition to Medicare still needing assistance with low income status. MA ended 11.30.14 and Medicare started 12.1.14. I had some unemployment that disqualified me for SNAP and help with Medicare for months of Nov and Dec. So I have to refill out the paperwork for medical, snap and QMB status with Medicare after Dec 29th to get help again. Can I sell my car before that date and use it for funeral & burial policy, or utilities up front (I rent) cable, dental Chiro treatments that are not allowed as not enough pain qualification etc. I understand if I give it to my kids, I will be penalized should I go into long term care, and if I sell it, money in bank can work against me as well
I rent, am managing myself at this time. Live in Anoka, MN. Have bilateral spinal stenosis on the cervical and some thoracic that Chiro was able to give me 12 treatments under MA until I just turned 65 this month and it has ended to be transferred to Medicare. After 12 treatments, they rejected further as I do not have severe pain..but do have numerous neurological issues with it. My income is extremely low due to no work and low Soc Sec early retirement as well. Can't afford gas or car insurance and can't give car to kids.
