ELDER NEEDS LAW, PLLC - Elder Law and Medicaid Planning Attorneys

When Should You Consider Hiring an Elder Care Lawyer?

As a Florida Medicaid lawyer who has handled hundreds of medicaid planning matters, our office helps those with too much income or assets, to qualify for Medicaid long-term care services. Medicaid will pay for some (home health aides, ALF costs) or all (nursing home care) long-term care costs.

As an experienced elder law attorney, I can legally and ethically protect your assets using a combination of Medicaid planning strategies. Two of the more common strategies are discussed below. However there are over a dozen ways to protect your, or your elderly loved one's assets against the significant cost of their long-term care.

Miller Trust | Qualified Income Trust

Qualified Income Trusts (also known as Miller Trusts) are used to assist those who earn too much income per month to naturally qualify for Medicaid, but not enough to cover all of their long-term care expenses (staying at home, moving into an assisted living facility, or requiring nursing home care).

As of 2018, the Medicaid income cap is: $2,250.00. Those earning more would need to place the excess in a properly-drafted Miller Trust.

Personal Services Contract | Family Caregiver Agreement

Personal Services Contracts are also known as family caregiver agreements. This is a technique utilized by elder care attorneys to get money to a close family member or friend who is assisting the Medicaid applicant.

A properly drafted personal services contract will avoid triggering the Medicaid five-year lookback period and protect against Medicaid estate recovery.

Medicaid is not just for the poor. You do not need to wait five years!

Federal law allows people to protect their assets (making it more likely that they will lead a higher quality of life & more likely to have assets to pass onto their heirs) if they plan properly. There is no magic wand and all Medicaid planning strategies have pros and cons. This is why its worth your while to meet with an experienced Florida Medicaid Planning Attorney to figure out the best plan for your unique set of circumtances.

What People Say About Us

"Jason and his team are responsive and communicate very well. Jason helped me to get the benefits that I qualified for much faster than expected. I would recommend him highly. My case seemed complicated to me, but Jason explained everything in detail and made everything go quite smoothly. I interviewed several elderlaw attorneys prior to choosing Jason Neufeld."

"Quick turn around time for appointments, great response time, very thorough, never rushed through and soooo easy to do business with over the internet! Read the website info, very very helpful!"

“The attorney Jason and his team are amazing at planning and execution. Me and my family would not trust anyone else with our estate planning needs.”

“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.”
