Medicaid & Medicare Planning
Many Americans believe that Medicare will pay for long-term care expenses. Unfortunately, this usually isn’t always true. Medicare only pays for the first 20 days of a nursing home stay related to rehabilitation or skilled nursing. For 80 more days, Medicare will pay part and you’ll likely have a significant daily co-pay.. After 100 days, you have to pay. The longer you need care, the lower your coverage drops.
To combat this, you can protect your assets through Florida Medicaid planning. Medicaid planning helps you qualify for Medicaid without selling all your assets. You have to have a certain amount of money to be eligible for Medicaid, so many people sell their assets to apply. 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 if you need to enter a care facility.
For instance, we will teach you about 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. Many people don’t know about this, so their application gets denied for transferring funds. However, don’t be fooled, the 60 month lookback period does NOT mean that you have to wait five years to plan. Most of our clients have significant assets and need Medicaid within a few months (they can’t wait five years).
Our attorneys can help with Medicaid planning. We will do whatever we can to help you receive assistance while preserving your assets. Applying for Medicaid can be overwhelming, and there are a lot of requirements you have to meet.

Probate is the process that occurs after your death and deals with distributing your estate assets. While probate is necessary, it is also time-consuming and expensive. Thankfully, Elder Needs Law can help you create an estate plan that avoids probate. For example, we can help you develop a trust that does not require probate.
Guardianship is when the courts grant legal authority to someone so they can take care of an older relative who can’t take care of themselves. Our legal team can help select a guardian for your loved one if they need extra assistance.
