Medicaid and Medicare Planning
You may be under the assumption that Medicare will pay for your long-term care expenses. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. Medicare only pays for the first 20 days of a nursing home stay related to skilled nursing or rehabilitation.
For the next 80 days, you’ll typically have to pay a daily co-pay. Then, after 100 days, you have to pay the full cost.
The longer you need care, the lower your coverage drops. Nursing home care is costly, so paying for this necessary care could eventually drain your hard-earned wealth.
The good news is that Florida Medicaid planning can help you fight against this system. To be eligible for Medicaid, you must have a minimum amount of money in your name. Therefore, many people sell their assets to apply. But you can receive Medicaid benefits without going broke. Medicaid planning allows you to qualify for Medicaid without giving up all of your assets.
A Medicaid planning attorney from Elder Needs Law can help you qualify for Medicaid assistance. They’ll walk you through the strategies that can make you eligible for Medicaid benefits without giving away your funds or selling your property—a common problem applicants have.
For example, we will inform you about the 60-month look-back period that Medicaid requires when transferring assets. If you give money or property to a family member other than your spouse in those five years, you are automatically ineligible for the program. Many people don’t know about this, so their application gets denied for transferring funds.
However, the 60-month look-back period does NOT mean you have to wait five years to start planning. Most of our clients have significant assets and need Medicaid within a few months, so they can’t wait five years.
Our elder care lawyers are skilled in saving client assets. We can secure your assets without affecting your Medicaid benefits if you need to enter a care facility. We’ll do whatever we can to help you receive Medicaid assistance while preserving your assets.
Applying for Medicaid can be overwhelming, and there are a lot of requirements you have to meet. We will help you meet those requirements without going broke.
