You want the best care possible for your spouse, and at the same time you want to protect the assets you both worked hard for. We can guide you through the process of protecting assets from nursing home costs, leveraging key federal and state rules that prevent spousal impoverishment.
We have helped clients with the following:
- Protect assets for the spouse of an individual who needs nursing home care
- Handle the paperwork to obtain Medicaid benefits and help avoid a denial of benefits
- Manage exceptions to the 5-year look-back and Medicaid transfer penalties
- Appeal denied benefits
Having a loved one under nursing home care can be emotionally taxing for you and your family. The paperwork involved in resource assessment and Medicaid applications does not have to be part of the stress.
