Long-Term Care & Medicaid Planning Attorneys
Medicaid planning requires attorneys who stay on top of the constantly changing and complex federal and state Medicaid regulations. Because of this, and the rapidly rising costs of healthcare, it is critical to have a skilled Medicaid planning attorney help you evaluate your options.
Medicaid planning involves finding ways to preserve assets while receiving medical care. Ideally, this process is undertaken years in advance. However, even if an emergency arises, and you or a loved one are forced to go from the hospital into a nursing home, there are ways we can help you. Our Medicaid planning lawyers have decades of estate planning experience.
That is why it's important for you to have the Medicaid planning team at Percy Law Group, PC on your side. Call our firm today to arrange aninitial consultation regarding your particular Medicaid planning needs, including the successful completion of your Medicaid application form.
Planning in Advance Is Not Always Necessary to Preserve Assets
Even if it is too late to shelter all your assets, our skilled Medicaid planning attorneys can help. For example, you can learn what medical, personal, and nursing home expenses can be reimbursed, or are exempt from the spend down requirements. We can investigate nursing home plans that preserve some assets. Some techniques that we have used in Medicaid planning include structured asset sales, annuities, and reverse mortgages. If you or your family have been instructed to reimburse the state for Medicaid expenses, often we can successfully negotiate on your behalf to greatly reduce the repayment obligation. In all of these efforts to protect your assets, our skilled Medicaid planning team attends hearings, reviews documents, and works hard to help you protect those assets you worked so hard to accumulate.
