Attorney Wiley believes in working with a wide range of specialists. It is difficult to be the best at everything; so, we frequently work with other attorneys to ensure that our clients obtain the highest level of care. While Attorney Wiley helps many of our clients with elder care issues we often bring in Hank Weatherby to assist with more complex cases. Hank is an industry leader in the field and we often trust our clients to his care. Hank Weatherby, recently wrote an article on a new Connecticut law and the potential to be sued by Nursing Homes which we felt would be beneficial to our community. If you have any questions about medicaid or Eldercare and you would like to setup a meeting with Hank at our North Haven office do not hesitate to contact us.

The Connecticut legislature recently passed a new law concerning Medicaid eligibility which allows nursing homes an additional basis to sue to recover lost revenue because a resident, or their spouse or agent under a power of attorney, transferred his or her assets to a third party. The law goes into effect October 1, 2013, but on its face it appears to apply to gifts and other transfers made in the two years before that date.
