Miller Trust

Christina Lesher and her team at The Law Office of Christina Lesher in Houston, Texas, can help you establish a Miller Trust, also known as Qualified Income Trusts (QITs). With the establishment of this type of trust, a person can obtain Medicaid nursing home coverage despite having too much income to qualify for such coverage.

In Texas, if an individual has more than $2,742 in gross monthly income, they are not eligible for Medicaid nursing home coverage. Miller Trusts provide a potential solution.

Each month, all of the income of the Medicaid beneficiary goes into the Miller Trust. The Miller Trust requires certain distributions to be made, such as co-payments to the nursing home, payment of the Medicare supplement policy, and a monthly allowance to the community spouse.
