Medicaid PlanningMedicaid Planning

Medicaid planning includes both Medicaid Preplanning and Medicaid Crisis Planning.

Medicaid Preplanning

Medicaid PrePlanning, sometimes referred to as Proactive Planning, is a process where we help clients protect their assets from the costs of long term care. We can help the elderly client protect their assets, if the client plans in advance, preferably five years before they need to apply to Medicaid to pay for their nursing home costs.

Medicaid Crisis Planning

You often hear of cases where someone’s parents lost everything to the nursing home and long-term care. What this means is that their parent did not have long term care insurance and/or sufficient money to pay for their nursing home care. The parent applied for Medicaid, which will cover the costs of the nursing home care, once the elderly person “spends down” practically all of their assets. Helping these clients involves Medicaid Crisis Planning.

Clients can work with us and we can help to preserve as much of their assets as possible from the costs of nursing home care. Medicaid will not tell you how you can save your assets, but we do. Clients can work with us and we can help to preserve as much of their assets as possible from the costs of nursing home care and long-term-care.
