Medicaid & Medicare Planning
Do you think Medicare will pay for long-term care expenses? Many Americans hold this belief. Unfortunately, it isn’t usually true. Medicare will only pay for the first 20 days of a nursing home stay related to rehabilitation. On day 21, you have to pay a copay. Medicare coverage of skilled nursing care usually drops to zero on day 101.
The good news is that Medicaid planning can protect your assets in a way that allows you to become eligible for Medicaid long-term care programs (such as ICP Medicaid and Medicaid Waiver). But how do you get Medicaid without reducing the size of your estate and going broke?
Elder Needs Law can guide you with Medicaid planning, so you don’t need to spend down your assets to qualify for the program. It’s also often possible to keep your family home; you don’t need to sell it to qualify.
Our lawyers are skilled in protecting client assets as much as legally possible. So even if you need to enter a long-term care facility, we may save your assets without affecting your Medicaid eligibility.
For instance, we will guide you on the 60-month look-back period the program requires when transferring assets. If you give money or property to your family other than your spouse in those five years, you can be ineligible for the program.
Our attorneys can advise you on this critical subject. They may ensure you obey the law, qualify for the program, and preserve your assets. If assets need to be transferred within five years, there are limited and very specific ways to do so.
Medicaid planning takes careful consideration. So, speaking to Elder Needs Law is essential to devise the best strategy.
