When it comes to Medical Assistance, purchase of other services other than personal care services is not an uncompensated transfer if:
- The service directly benefits the person; and
- The person paid an amount consistent with customary fees charged for similar services in the community in which the person resides.
An example cited by the state is a person who hires a family member to pack and move the person’s belongings to a new apartment or storage. As long as the person paid the family member a fee consistent with the fees charged by local moving companies, the person did not make an uncompensated transfer to the relative.
