Medicaid Planning Service

At Commonwealth Elder Law, PLLC , our Medicaid Planning Services help clients save money over the long run as well as ensure they are getting the best care – for themselves or a loved one.

It’s important to keep in mind that Medicaid rules include numerous opportunities for nursing home residents to preserve assets for themselves or their spouses, children or grandchildren.

We are experienced attorneys at Medicaid rules and can help ensure you take advantage of all the opportunities that are available to you.

We also understand that moving a loved one into a nursing home can be a difficult, stressful time. It can be even more stressful if the loved one has an existing medical condition – such as Alzheimer’s disease – or has suffered a recent stroke or heart attack.

Our services give you the peace of mind of knowing that you are providing your loved one with the nursing home care that he or she needs while also protecting the family assets.

Let us help you age comfortably, affordably and securely.

Medicaid Planning

Often people are not aware of the options available to them.
For example, the “Record Spotlight,” a publication in California, recently reported that a daughter and granddaughter ended up being charged with elder abuse because they didn’t get the mother the nursing home care she needed because “they were afraid Medicaid would take their house.”
A consultation with a lawyer may have helped them avoid the whole unfortunate situation.

You can count on us to explain all your available options and help you plan the best course forward.

Here are some of the many benefits associated with our Medicaid Planning service:

Save Money

Clients are typically able to save much more in long-term care and probate costs compared to the legal fees they pay for our Medicaid Planning service.

Get Experienced Help

We have deep knowledge of Medicaid as well as extensive experience helping clients maximize their Medicaid benefits. We will use our experienced knowledge and experience to help you achieve your goals in a way that less knowledgeable, less experienced advisors are simply not able to do.

Eliminate Conflict of Interest

Nursing homes often refer families to non-lawyers for assistance in preparing the Medicaid application. These non-lawyers have a conflict of interest in that it is in the nursing home’s best interest for a resident to pay privately for as long as possible before going on Medicaid. On the other hand, it’s in the resident’s (and their family’s) best interest to protect the family assets. Our commitment will only be to you. We do our best to protect your family’s assets while still ensuring your loved one receives the best possible care.

Put Your Mind at Ease

When it comes to Medicaid planning, it is natural to wonder whether you have done everything you could to get the best for your loved one. By using our Medicaid Planning service, you will have the peace of mind that no stone has been left unturned. You will know that everything possible has been done to maximize Medicaid benefits while preserving assets.

The bottom line is moving a family member or loved one to a nursing home is a difficult time. But by not consulting with a lawyer you could make it even more difficult.

Medicaid eligibility is complex and to make matters worse the rules change frequently. We stay on top of all rule changes.

The Medicaid application process can also be lengthy and time consuming and without any help you could easily end up feeling overwhelmed. To make matters worse, the consequences of being denied Medicaid can be severe and even ultimately negatively impact an applicant’s health.

That’s a lot of pressure to endure – and we already mentioned the conflict of interest that can exist with nursing home recommended non-lawyers. We help relieve that pressure and uncertainty by ensuring the financial resources are structured properly and documentation is prepared properly to ensure the best chance of Medicaid acceptance.

We are also experienced at managing finances to ensure a healthy spouse (or possibly other family members) has the adequate income and resources they need to continue to live independently. We could even help protect a family home from Medicaid recovery.

You can count on us to help you answer the question: “how can I get my loved one the nursing home care he or she needs while still preserving the family assets?”

And in doing that, we will help you gain peace of mind that you are doing the right thing for the situation you are facing. Please click here to schedule a consultation to discuss the matter further.
