Hi and welcome to JA Ray here to help you today.
Unfortunately no medicaid is always going to be the first beneficiary, however you can add husband as secondary beneficiary--he would get any left over funds after medicaid is repaid.One of the requirements of an SNT is that medicaid gets repaid first.It is in your interest here to spend the funds while you can so medicaid doesn't get them.
You would not have been able to do this even if you were married before the trust, medicaid here always gets repaid first, husband can be secondary beneficiary for any left over funds.
I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
You woudldneed a trust amendment here to your SNT to add spouse as secondary beneficiary for any left over funds.Thats the best you can do here.
