A "Miller Trust" in Florida is also known as a Qualified Income Trust. They are essentially one and the same.
If your loved one is looking to get long-term care Medicaid in Florida, there is both an asset test and an income test. If the applicant's gross income exceeds the limit (some $2,892/m in 2024), then the applicant will not be eligible for Medicaid without legally lowering the applicant's income below the limit. There are essentially two options for lowering the applicant's income, which are:
- Qualified Income Trust (a/k/a Miller Trust); or
- Joining a Pooled Trust
