Medicaid Information

Medicaid Planning and Applications

If you or a loved one face the potentially catastrophic costs of nursing home care, prompt legal advice may save substantial assets. Neither the government nor the nursing home are automatically entitled to take your home or all your assets.

Do not listen to anyone who tells you that you have to spend down everything before you qualify for Medicaid!

Do not accept Medicaid advice from the staff at the nursing home! They are not qualified to give legal advice, and they profit by you spending down your resources at the “private pay” rate before they have to provide care at the much-reduced Medicaid rate.

With proper advance planning it is possible to preserve all of your assets.

Even after entering a nursing home, it is still possible to legally protect a substantial portion of your assets.
