Younger Floridians should think about general estate planning when they own a home or have their first child (we can help). But, once you are near retirement, it's time to start senior-focused estate and Medicaid planning If you wait too long, it can cost you.

Medicaid & Medicare Planning

Many Americans think Medicare will pay for nursing home care. Unfortunately, even the best medicare supplement has a very limited nursing home benefit.. Medicare only covers the initial 20 days of a rehabilitation-related stay. A co-pay is required starting on day 21 (a good Medicare Supplement or Medicare Advantage Plan may cover a portion of this co-pay). 

That's why many families with sizable assets do Medicaid planning to be accepted into the program. Sometimes, Medicaid will pay for some or all of their skilled nursing care. But how can you qualify for Medicaid without draining your savings and investment accounts? 

With proper medicaid planning, it isn't necessary to spend down your assets to qualify for Medicaid. But many Americans may sell their home unnecessarily because they think they'll lose them when they apply for Medicaid. Or, they needlessly give away liquid assets because they believe they'll lose them when they enter a nursing home. 

Elder Needs Law is highly skilled in protecting our client's assets as much as the law allows. So, even if you need to go to a nursing home later, our attorneys can help safeguard your assets without affecting your ability to qualify for Medicaid. 

Our estate planning lawyers will, for example, help you plan for the 60-month look-back period Medicaid requires to transfer assets - if you have five years to plan. If you move your money or property to someone other than your spouse in those five years, you may be ineligible for Medicaid. If you have less than five years (maybe you want Medicaid now or in a few months, then we approach your case with a different set of Medicaid planning strategies).

Fortunately, our attorneys can advise you on this critical subject. They may ensure you obey the law, qualify for the program, and preserve your assets. 

Medicaid planning takes careful consideration. So, speaking to Elder Needs Law is essential to devise the best strategy.  

Comprehensive Estate Planning

Elder Needs Law also can guide you with comprehensive estate planning, including creating: 

  • Wills – These legal documents detail what you want to happen to your estate after you pass away. 
  • Trusts – Our team can create a trust for your estate, such as a revocable living trust that isn't subject to probate. 
  • Advance directives: This document states your wishes about receiving medical care if incapacitated. 
  • Powers of attorney: This power gives one or more of your relatives (or anyone you choose) the power to manage your assets if you cannot do so. POA can be limited or general. 

Elder Law

  • Medicaid planning
  • Estate planning

  • Guardianship
  • Retirement benefits

Probate

Probate is the public court process that reviews the assets in an estate and distributes them according to the will or Law. In Florida, Probate court takes time and is expensive. We can (and do) assist with Probate Administration when needed, but it is more likely to be avoided with proper estate planning.

Our attorneys will work to help you avoid probate with various probate mitigation strategies. 

Guardianship

Guardianship is a legal relationship created when a court appoints someone to care for an older person who cannot care for themselves (and does not have a Durable Power of Attorney). Elder Needs Law can offer advice on naming a guardian if needed.

“A strong recommendation for Jason Neufeld and his Elder Law firm - very professional, patient, reliable, and experienced. When my father fell terminally ill, I became responsible for his assets and finances overnight, including the daunting task to qualify him for Medicaid. I interviewed several elder law firms but was most impressed by Jason’s client approach and practices. Throughout the process, Jason and his team provided clear guidance and support to successfully complete all the new and complex tasks required as a POA, and more importantly he enabled us to quickly achieve our goals related to Medicaid and estate planning. His fees are more than reasonable for the level of due diligence and support we received.”
