Why Do I Need Medicaid Planning?

If you are 65 or older right now, you have at least a 70% chance of needing long-term senior care sometime in the future. That estimate only goes up as you continue to age. With nursing home prices higher than the average income of most Florida seniors–and even most Florida families–it’s not feasible that everyone who needs nursing home care will be able to afford it. Even if you have the means to pay for nursing home care, the costs have the potential to quickly deplete your savings and leave you with little or nothing to pass on to your family.

If you are planning to rely on Medicare for your medical needs, it’s important to note that Medicare will not cover expenses for your nursing home care. Medicare has provisions for short-term nursing care, but that does not include the cost of a nursing home. 

So what are your options for having your healthcare needs covered without going broke? When you work with our experienced Palm Beach Gardens Medicaid planning attorney, you can get the coverage you need for the future.

Medicaid is a needs-based government program that provides healthcare options for those with low incomes, which often includes older individuals. Most importantly, it covers long-term nursing home care. Best of all, working with our Medicaid planning attorney will allow you to become eligible for Medicaid even if you do not currently meet the qualifications. 

How Can A Palm Beach Gardens Medicaid Planning Attorney Help Me?

Working with our Medicaid planning attorney will allow you to become eligible for Medicaid even if you are not already. Since you are not allowed to own more than $2,000 in countable assets, our attorney can help you rearrange your assets so that you can qualify. We’ll even assist you with the application!

Some people worry about whether or not Medicaid planning is legal. If you lie about your assets or try to hide them, that is illegal. But when you work with an experienced attorney who knows how to legally rearrange and restructure your assets, you are covered.

It’s best to start sooner rather than later when it comes to Medicaid planning. The application process includes a five-year lookback period during which officials will look for large transfers of assets that could disqualify you. For this reason, get started as soon as possible!
