Medicaid is a joint federal, state and local program that provides health and medical benefits, including financial assistance for those with long-term care needs. In order to qualify for Medicaid, you must meet strict eligibility requirements. Many people who are seeking Medicaid are concerned that they must have little or no assets in order to qualify. In fact, with sound legal planning, it is often possible to protect assets while qualifying for Medicaid.

Medicaid Eligibility Planning

To be eligible your income and assets cannot exceed a certain level. Legal strategies for qualifying for Medicaid vary from case to case. Some strategies you may wish to consider include:

  • Transferring assets to family members
  • Gifting
  • Establishing pooled income trusts
  • Using long-term care insurance

These matters must be handled with care so that you do not draw unwanted scrutiny from government agencies. I will handle your elder law matters with the utmost care and attention to detail, ensuring that you have the best possible chance of qualifying for Medicaid while protecting assets.

Medicaid Applications

A misstep in the Medicaid application process could mean the difference between eligibility and denial of benefits. Your Medicaid application must be accompanied by thorough and accurate information regarding your health, medical history and financial resources.

I can guide you through all of the steps of completing your Medicaid application, ensuring that you fulfill all of the filing requirements and meet the necessary deadlines. If your Medicaid case worker requests additional information, I will give your file the prompt attention it requires.
