Sarasota Medicaid Planning Lawyers
Protect Your Future with Advocates in Aging
Among the most devastating news a family can receive comes in the form of a diagnosis of dementia or physical decline of a loved one. The personal issues are profound; the financial considerations can be overwhelming. The costs of long-term care, whether at home or in a facility, can devastate a modest retirement savings. It puts in jeopardy not only the one who needs care, but those dependent on them for support. At these times, it becomes essential to understand what benefit programs can help and which don’t. For some, VA benefits provide relief; for many others, the only available option is Medicaid.
Medicaid is a program which is run jointly by both the federal government and the state government that can assist in paying for long-term care. Benefits might be available for assisted living, but obtaining them is quite difficult. For nursing home care, availability is far greater but the government imposes a number of factors for determining eligibility that may require skilled planning to work within. Limitations on levels of income and assets, protection for spouses at home and disabled children often need to be finessed for optimum results.
While Medicaid seems like a straightforward program, determining your eligibility can be complicated. Working with an experienced Medicaid attorney, like ours at Advocates in Aging, can help you understand the rules and regulations, and can help you plan for the future. Our elder law attorneys are well-versed in all aspects of Medicaid, have been successfully guiding clients for decades and can help you today.
