Saugerties Attorneys Handling Medicaid Planning
It takes thought and effort to earn significant assets. It also takes thought and effort to protect them. Without proper planning, many people find that the assets they spent their lives working hard for are quickly depleted, when they experience a serious illness or injury that requires nursing home care.
Medicaid will pay for nursing home care, but the program requires that the beneficiaries have few or no assets. In order to be eligible, people must start thinking about their future years in advance. If you start planning soon enough, you may be able to strategically spend down or assign assets so that you qualify for Medicaid benefits.
But the key is thinking ahead. Without preplanning, you could find yourself in serious trouble, paying back Medicaid for the expenses it covered.
