Consulting with an attorney regarding Medicaid or hiring an attorney to help obtain Medicaid benefits can provide the following benefits:
- Guidance: If you want to do most of the work, but just want a guide to warn you about the potential pitfalls and provide some advice, we can provide you with the information you need to ensure that you are on the right track.
- Benefits Eligibility: Is your loved one in the nursing home, but you think that they have too much money to qualify for benefits? A consult with an attorney can provide you with information about how to make your loved one eligible for benefits while protecting as many of their assets as possible.
- Qualified Income Trust: Does your loved one qualify for benefits based on their assets but have too much income to qualify for benefits? Our attorneys can draft a qualified income trust at a flat rate fee to make your loved one eligible for benefits.
- Application Process: If you are overwhelmed by the application process and are too busy or too confused to tackle this on your own, you can retain our attorneys to do as much of the work as possible for a flat rate that is quoted to you after your initial consultation.
- Medicaid Appeal: If you or your loved one has been denied Medicaid, our attorneys can review the case, and in most instances, we can still help to obtain benefits. Don’t continue to pay thousands of dollars a month if you don’t have to.
- Legal Documentation: If you or your loved one is not yet ready for nursing home care, you can meet with our attorneys to ensure that you have the proper legal documentation and planning in place should Medicaid become necessary in the future.
