2012/2013 ANNUAL REPORT:

This Section, at the request of the Public Awareness Committee, revised, updated, and rewrote the text of the Nursing Home Admission Contracts in Maryland legal information brochure, published by the MSBA. Its Section Council members continued to work closely with Maryland Senator Delores G. Kelley and the state’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to revise Maryland Medical Assistance eligibility rules, so that certain standard payments made routinely and regularly by Maryland residents, are treated as exempt “transfers,” to enhance Medical Assistance benefits for Maryland citizens. The Section also presented a CLE program entitled “Asset Management and Medical Decision Making”; its annual February meeting with State Legislators in Annapolis; and a joint meeting with the Animal Law Section on service animals and related topics of mutual interest to the members of the two Sections. It will present a program entitled “It Takes a Village”, on the interdisciplinary nature of an Elder Law practice, at the MSBA Annual Meeting.
