Take An Important Step And Work With Our Attorneys When Undertaking Medicaid Planning

Today’s elderly are a generation who have often been through historically economic financial struggles. When income didn’t keep pace with expenses, many were used to having to tighten their belt to the last notch. Now in certain financial situations whether it’s low income, health issues that have eaten away lifelong savings, or you or your loved one lost everything due to the rising cost of living, you may consider applying for Medicaid.

Medicaid does not mean substandard care. Those already on Medicare will receive extra benefits when approved for the Medicaid program. Expenses not covered by Medicare, such as deductibles, hospital care, medical/nursing home bills and medicines, are picked up by the Medicaid program. Medicaid is the largest source of government funding for nursing home/assisted living care.

Qualifying for Medicaid will not cause the loss of your home, nor will you be stripped of all funds.
