Medicaid is the health care program for individuals who do not have another form of insurance or whose insurance does not cover what they need, such as long-term care. Many people rely on Medicaid for assistance in paying for care at home or in nursing homes.
We offer expert advice on how position yourself to qualify for benefits as early as possible and how to preserve assets. We have experience in dealing with the more difficult eligibility questions that often arise, and provide you a high level of service through a complicated government process.
Recognizing that you may need help taking care of yourself is difficult. Most people put off asking for help until it can’t be ignored. We help families who need guidance in understanding the landscape of preparing for the costs of in-home care, assisted living and nursing home care.
We prepare reports for clients that help them understand their planning options by analyzing their finances, health issues and life goals.
The knowledge that we will eventually die is one of the things that distinguishes humans from other living beings. At the same time, no one likes to dwell on the prospect of his or her own death or incapacity. But if you, your parents or other loved ones postpone planning until it is too late, you run the risk that your intended beneficiaries — those you love the most — may not receive all that you would hope or that there will be no one to take care of your business and health care decisions during your incapacity.
