Preserving Assets and Eligibility

Long term care planning is overwhelming for many families. We have the skills and experience to help you implement effective planning with ease. We help you understand what is available through Medicare and help you organize your estate in a manner which may maximize Medicaid eligibility.

Medicaid Planning

Medicaid is able to cover costs of medical bills and extended long term care services that would not be covered by Medicare. Medicaid provides coverage based upon income and need. While there are strict and evolving eligibility guidelines, there is still planning that can be done to maximize your eligibility for Medicaid.

Medicare Planning

Medicare is health insurance which may cover the cost of hospitalization, doctor bills, and limited nursing home or assisted living stays. However, Medicare will usually not cover extended long term care services. Extended long term care costs may need to be covered privately which can easily exhaust assets within one’s estate.

We assess your future objectives, plans for protecting your spouse, and goals for transferring wealth to family members.
