When a person is found to have transferred property which affects eligibility, they must be notified (via the IM-32, IM-33, IM-80, or IM-82A) of the following facts:

  1. The property transferred and date transferred.
  2. The fair market value.
  3. The uncompensated value.
  4. That the claimant transferred the property with the intent to gain eligibility or transferred the home and did not provide evidence to establish otherwise.
  5. The length of ineligibility for vendor level of care or HCB services.

Persons who are not applying/receiving vendor level benefits but who have transferred property must be notified that transfers of property without receiving fair and valuable consideration may affect eligibility should the claimant enter a nursing home within 36 (or 60, if the transfer involved a trust or annuity) months from the date of the transfer.
