Medicaid Planning

It’s often assumed that Medicare will simply pay for your long-term care expenses like long-term care. However, this isn’t always true. 

Medicare often only pays for the first 20 days of a nursing home stay before it starts to reduce coverage. Then, for the following 80 days, you’re typically required to pay a copay. The longer your nursing home stay is, the more expensive the facility becomes, and for many, their life savings could end up being completely drained.

Here's why. To be eligible for Medicaid, you can only have so much wealth in your name. To meet the economic requirements, many people try to simply sell their assets to get their holdings down to the required amount.

But the good news is that you can receive Medicaid benefits without selling off your assets or going broke. Medicaid planning can help you navigate the system ethically and legally. It helps you qualify for Medicaid without giving up all of your money.

A Medicaid planning attorney from Elder Needs Law can walk you through the planning process. We’ll talk with you about the possible strategies that could make you eligible for Medicaid benefits without giving away your money or selling your property. Our elder care lawyers are skilled at saving clients’ money and we can secure your assets without affecting your Medicaid benefits.

For example, we’ll walk you through what the 60-month look-back period that Medicaid adheres to when it comes to transferring your assets. Many don’t realize that planning can be done at any time, there is no reason to wait five years. We have ways of protecting your assets within five years that do not involve gifting. 

The problem occurs if you give money or property to your family (other than your spouse) within five years. . 

Many people don’t know about this, so their Medicaid application gets denied because they transferred funds within the 60-month period. We can help you avoid this by setting up a trust or using a variety of other Medicaid planning strategies.

Talk to Elder Needs Law to create a strategic plan, which  will help you earn Medicaid benefits.

“I've been very impressed! A friend referred me and I've experienced nothing but perfect service and professionalism. I am extremely grateful!”

“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.”
