Attorneys Serving Central Florida
Medicaid planning is time-consuming and complicated, but it’s a vital aspect of elder law and long-term care planning to ensure that clients and their families are well-cared for. Long-term care, such as a stay in a nursing home or assisted living facility, is one of the most expensive health expenses for seniors, yet Medicare does not cover it. Most people can’t afford long-term care without assistance, with costs ranging from $3,000 to $4,000 per month for assisted living to $7,500 per month for nursing facility care. Long-term care is covered by the government’s Medicaid program, although, unlike Medicare, Medicaid is a needs-based program. Medicaid is only available to persons who have a low income. The firm’s elder law team understands the complexity of Medicaid planning and the tools available to help plan before you require nursing care, one that organizes and labels your assets in a way that safeguards them while also protecting your capacity to get Medicaid benefits.
