knowledgable lawyers for

medicaid

One of our specializations is in asset protection planning for Medicaid. We can help you determine you or your loved one’s qualification for Medicaid, fill out the application form, and follow the best route to protect your assets.

  • Medicaid is a federal and state program that pays for long term care for those who qualify.
  • There is a wrong assumption that Medicare covers long term care. Medicare does not cover costs of basic daily life expenses such as bathing, eating, dressing, or walking. However, Medicaid does.
  • The average cost for a Nursing Home in Sarasota County is $7,600 per month and these costs are rising annually.
  • If a person is eligible, Medicaid pays the difference between their gross income and care costs.
  • The law provides many Medicaid asset protection planning tools to help you dispose of your assets so that you can utilize them for the rest of your life and still qualify for Medicaid.
  • Medicaid planning is technical and often complex. No two cases are alike.
