A Medicaid planning attorney can help protect you from losing your life savings once you or a loved one is admitted to a nursing home. To apply for Medicaid and receive assistance, you’ll need to fall below certain financial thresholds set by the state and federal government.
Unfortunately, many families are forced to spend down their life savings to cover nursing home care before they qualify for Medicaid.
Don’t wait until your family is in financial ruin to seek legal help. Call today to schedule your free consultation with one of our Medicaid planning lawyers.
Are You Facing a Medicaid Crisis?
A Medicaid crisis happens when a client needs nursing home care, but has been told that they have too much money or too many assets to qualify for Medicaid. Their family would then be forced to spend down their life savings on long-term care until they fall beneath the financial thresholds for Medicaid eligibility.
We’ve seen nursing home expenses range from $5,000 to $10,000 per month, which can quickly drain your family’s life savings. Fortunately, our Medicaid planning attorneys are familiar with asset protection strategies for individuals and married couples.
Our attorneys can help you protect the maximum amount of money allowed without risking your Medicaid eligibility. Many of our clients have been wrongly told by social workers, nursing home staff, and even Medicaid workers that they don’t qualify for Medicaid. However, our Medicaid attorneys are familiar with laws that apply to your situation and can help you fight for the most favorable outcome.
