Elder Law Attorney Serving the Denver Area
Determining if you are eligible for Medicaid is a complex and time-consuming
process. Although the application and review can be lengthy, the consequences
of not having Medicaid coverage can be far more troubling. An experienced
Medicaid planner can help you configure a strong legal strategy, giving
you a better chance of being accepted into the Medicaid program. Our Medicaid
planners not only help you better understand your financial resources,
but also create trusts, manage your asset transfers, and complete your
necessary legal paperwork. Our
elder law attorneys have the experience to help guide you through the Medicaid process.
What a Medicaid Planner Can Do for You
While there is free Medicaid assistance widely available, qualified assistance
is more likely to come from an experienced Medicaid planner. Some situations
might require diligent planning to ensure the medical and financial coverage
of you or a loved one. These situations include:
One Spouse Requires Care: Medical care costs can easily exceed the value of a couple’s total
resources. Because a separation of resources will likely be needed, it
is wise to hire a Medicaid planner to help ensure your loved will be allowed
to remain living at home.
Both Spouses Require Care: Long-term care for two people is extremely pricey. When Medicaid is denied,
the caregiving and financial responsibilities placed on family members
can be substantial. Planning early in these situations is critical if
you want to be accepted into the Medicaid program.
Long-Term Family Care: Working with a planner is one way to help preserve assets or wealth for
children or grandchildren. Mistakes made while planning for future care
can potentially impact eligibility for up to 5 years. Again, Medicaid
planning sometimes requires complex legal and financial know-how. Getting
help from a planner is strongly advised.
A Single Person with no Assets or Income: Typically, the severe financial hardship suggested by the situation qualifies
you for Medicaid. Though the need for assistance is not likely in this
case, you might want to seek legal assistance to check for procedural errors.
