Planning ahead is ideal, but many times the Medicaid eligibility rules are not considered until after an unexpected nursing home placement occurs.
At this stressful time, we can help you:
- Navigate the complicated rules regarding Medicaid eligibility as it relates to nursing home care
- Take the steps to shelter assets from nursing home costs for the benefit of the spouse at home and prevent that spouse from becoming impoverished
- Complete and submit your Medicaid application
- Troubleshoot any issues that may arise during the Medicaid application process including denial of benefits
There is no financial incentive for the nursing homes to advise nursing home residents or their families on how to protect assets from nursing home costs or accelerate Medicaid eligibility. You should consult with an elder law attorney who is familiar with Medicaid long-term care benefits and the application process.
