Medicaid Planning

Individualized Medicaid Planning

When elderly individuals need long-term care, Medicaid may be available to assist with the costs. Medicaid planning can protect family assets and the income of an independent spouse. This has become more important as costs for long-term care increase. In Ohio, the median cost for an assisted living facility is about $4,000 per month, but can easily reach up to $7,000 in Columbus.The complexity of Medicaid eligibly rules requires knowledgeable legal guidance. We give tailored advice. We suggest options that meet your goals once we understand your financial picture. Often, Medicaid planning is a part of a broader estate planning conversation.
The Benefits Of Planning Ahead
Asset protection planning avoids the need to give everything away to a nursing home. It ensures resources are available for a healthy spouse to continue living independently. It is a way to pass assets to children or loved ones while concurrently taking advantage of available state benefits. Options exist to convert income and resources into non-countable assets. A simple error, however, can result in the denial of Medicaid benefits. We make sure this does not happen. You will work directly with our attorneys through each step of the process.
