Applying for Medicaid is a complex and often daunting process. If an individual does not provide all of the necessary information, benefits will be denied, and the process may have to start again.
Medicaid employs a “snapshot” approach to determine eligibility. An individuals financial snapshot occurs on the first day of each month. A Medicaid application made in a particular month may seek benefits retroactive to proceeding months.
We have a team of attorneys and paralegals who file applications for Medicaid benefits every month. We have the requisite experience, forms and relationships necessary to effectively file and advocate for our clients.
When selecting a firm to help you with your Medicaid application, you should seek someone with significant experience. The right attorney can make all the difference.

ASSET PROTECTION FROM THE NURSING HOME
When an individual is admitted to Chronic Care in a nursing home, the costs can exceed $14,000 per month, easily consuming a lifetime of savings.
Our firm can help you and your loved ones protect assets from being spent at the nursing home. We employ a variety of techniques, including irrevocable trusts, exempt asset transfers, exempt asset spend-down planning, spousal budgeting, spousal refusal and gift and note (so called “half-a-loaf”) planning. Each of these strategies require a thorough understanding of the clients situation and how existing law relates to it.
No one strategy is right for everyone and each case requires analysis and planning.
