### A client may be eligible for HCBS even if their income is over the limit, if they establish a(n) __________.

Income Trust
Explanation
An income trust is a legal arrangement where a person's income is placed into a trust, which allows them to qualify for certain benefits or services that have income limits. In the context of HCBS (Home and Community Based Services), an income trust can be used to help a client who has income over the limit still be eligible for the services. By placing their income into a trust, the client's income is no longer considered when determining eligibility, allowing them to receive the HCBS services.

Rate this question:

• 9.

### True or False:  Income trusts MUST be approved by the state before the client is eligible for HCBS?

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
Income trusts must be approved by the state before the client is eligible for HCBS. This means that in order for a client to receive Home and Community Based Services (HCBS), their income trust must go through a state approval process. Without this approval, the client would not be eligible for HCBS.

D. Quarter
Explanation
The client is required to provide a bank statement for the income trust every quarter. This means that they have to submit the statement every three months.

Explanation
HCBS (Home and Community Based Services) looks at the resources of the client and the client's spouse. This means that when determining eligibility for HCBS, the income and assets of both the client and their spouse are taken into consideration. This is important because it helps to determine the level of financial need and whether the client qualifies for the services and support provided by HCBS.

### HCBS has a _______ look back period for resources.

• A.

1 year

• B.

5 year

• C.

3 year

• D.

4 year

B. 5 year
Explanation
HCBS has a 5-year look back period for resources. This means that when determining eligibility for HCBS (Home and Community Based Services), the program will review the applicant's financial resources for the previous 5 years. This allows the program to assess if the applicant has transferred or disposed of any assets in order to qualify for the benefits. By having a longer look back period, HCBS aims to prevent individuals from intentionally depleting their resources to meet the program's asset limits.

Rate this question:

• 17.

### If a client gets rid of resources for less than they are worth during the lookback period, this is considered a ________.

transfer without fair consideration
TWFC
Explanation
If a client sells or disposes of their resources for less than their actual value during the lookback period, it is considered a transfer without fair consideration. This means that the client did not receive fair market value for their resources, which may indicate an attempt to hide or reduce their assets in order to qualify for certain benefits or assistance programs. The term TWFC is an abbreviation for transfer without fair consideration.

Rate this question:

• 18.

### If a client has a transfer without fair consideration, they may also have a...

• A.

Sanction

• B.

Problem

• C.

Period of ineligibilty

C. Period of ineligibilty
Explanation
If a client has a transfer without fair consideration, it means they have transferred an asset or property without receiving anything in return or receiving less than its fair market value. In such cases, there may be a period of ineligibility imposed on the client. This period of ineligibility refers to a time during which the client may be ineligible for certain benefits or services due to the transfer. This is often done to prevent individuals from intentionally divesting themselves of assets in order to qualify for government assistance or benefits.
