Changes in Medicaid—Expansion: CCC Plus and Developmental Disability Waiver Program
Edward E. Zetlin

Significant changes have occurred with Medicaid over the last year. This session will outline Commonwealth expansion of Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act; the Medicaid move to managed care under CCC+ (Commonwealth Coordinated Care Plus), and explanation of the Developmental Disability Waiver Program.

Special Needs Trusts Planning and the New POMS
Elizabeth L. Gray, Ann Green

Social Security has issued new POMS (Program Operations Manual System), which are the controlling documents for special needs trusts. This session will cover the new POMS and what it means for special needs planning.

Protecting Vulnerable Clients from Financial Exploitation and Abuse
Ann Green, Timothy K. Palmer, Carolyn A. White

As our aging population continues to grow, so does the potential for physical and financial exploitation of our most vulnerable citizens. What can we, as practitioners, do to protect our seniors? In this presentation, you will gain an understanding of the common victim profile as well as the warning signs of abuse from real-world examples; you will learn about what the federal and state governments are doing to help combat this problem; and what you can do if you notice the warning signs, from making sure your clients have the right legal documents in place to recommending support groups and other resources.

Reforming or Decanting a Trust to Avoid Unintended Consequences
Neal L. Walters, Carolyn A. White

Even though a trust says that it is irrevocable, sometimes life intervenes and changes need to be made. Reformation and decanting provide methods by which an attorney can modify or redraft a trust so as to fulfill the grantor's intent in such situations. This session will review the statutes and case law governing the process as well as pitfalls facing the practitioner.
Ethics in Elder Law: Representing Clients with Diminished Capacity
Timothy K. Palmer

How can we advise elderly clients with diminished capacity?  Representing elderly clients involves determining capacity, working with agents under a power of attorney, and often taking protective action for our clients.
