Medicaid is a government-funded healthcare plan that is only available to those who qualify financially. While Medicaid will cover an enrollee’s long-term care expenses, the program is means-tested, meaning that many people must “spend down” or juggle their assets in order to qualify for assistance. Our attorneys are able to help you become eligible for this significant government assistance program. Cognizant of the 5-year look back period Medicaid uses to examine your recent financial dealings, we typically take precautions years in advance to avert a possible crisis situation. Nonetheless, if you or another family member needs immediate long-term care, often we can implement certain techniques and strategies that will help to protect as much of your accumulated wealth as possible.
How Palmer Slay, PLLC Is Special
By the time you have matured and developed your own skill sets, you have probably come to realize how important it is to hire people who are proficient in their own fields. Just as it is wise to seek out orthopedists to mend broken bones and electricians to repair faulty wiring, you should consult with elder care attorneys when you need assistance with elder care issues.
Our firm, because we focus on matters involving elder law, such as estate planning, long-term care/Medicaid planning, probate, and VA pension, we go to great lengths to keep current with the details of these practice areas, maintaining memberships in national elder organizations and attending conferences to stay abreast of law changes and new techniques to achieve your goals. Because long-term care has become increasingly complex over the years, we understand the importance of keeping apprised of every new piece of legislation that affects the older population. When you come to our office, you will immediately realize that you have come to a legal practice that will customize its work to your particular needs and always treat you with the concern and respect you deserve.
