Elder & Disability Law
Advance Planning for Long-Term Care Benefits
Elder and disability law is a multi-disciplinary practice area that addresses specific legal issues facing elderly and disabled persons.
These issues include estate planning, access to public benefits such as Medicaid and Medicare, and preserving wealth for families while achieving or maintaining eligibility for public benefits.
Without the proper advance planning, a significant portion of a family’s assets could be consumed by the costs of long-term care for a loved one. Long-term care facilities charge up to $15,000 a month for private pay patients. Many clients can benefit from advance planning for Medicaid eligibility to preserve wealth for their families.
Help with Medicaid Qualification
Medicaid qualification is subject to many complex and often counter-intuitive rules and regulations.
Understanding these rules and regulations is imperative for navigating the Medicaid application process. This task is overwhelming at any time but can be a particular challenge for people during the emotional, stressful times associated with supporting loved ones who need long-term care.
