Medicaid and Medicare Planning
So many people think that Medicare will pay for long-term care or end-of-life expenses. Unfortunately, this isn’t necessarily true. Medicare usually only pays for the first 20 days of a nursing home stay. Then, for the following 80 days, Medicare coverage drops, and you have to pay a copay. The longer you require care, the more your coverage drops, which means you have to pay more. So if you need to stay in a nursing home for over 20 days, which most do, your savings will be drained.
Thankfully, Medicaid planning can help you fight against this system. Medicaid planning helps you qualify for Medicaid without giving up all of your assets. To be eligible for Medicaid, you can only have a specific, low amount of wealth to your name. To meet this requirement, many people sell their assets. But you can receive Medicaid benefits without going broke.
A Medicaid planning attorney from Elder Needs Law can help you qualify for Medicaid assistance. They’ll teach you strategies that make you eligible for benefits without giving away your funds or selling your property. Our elder care lawyers are skilled in saving client assets. We can secure your assets without affecting your Medicaid benefits.
For instance, we will teach you about the 60-month look-back period that Medicaid requires when transferring assets. If you give money or property to your family other than your spouse in those five years, you are ineligible for the program. Many people don’t know about this, so their application gets denied for transferring funds to meet the requirement. We can help you avoid this by setting up a trust or completing other Medicaid planning strategies.
At Elder Needs Law, we aim to help you earn Medicaid without selling all your assets and going broke. Applying to Medicaid is often time-consuming and complicated. That’s why we are here to help you apply and ensure that you remain eligible.
