Addison Texas

If you are looking for an attorney who handles Medicaid issues for those living in Addison Texas then here are some thoughts from a lawyer who specializes in the topic.

MEDICAID PLANNING FOR LONG-TERM CARE

 

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

The annual cost of nursing home care increases annually. In 2014 Texas nursing home care can range from $55,000-$70,000 per year. Many seniors (and their families) are lead to believe that if they don’t have long-term care insurance and or have the means for private pay care that they can solely rely on Medicaid to cover most of their long-term care and or nursing home costs. Others believe that Medicare will cover many of these escalating costs. Nothing can be further from the truth!

Long-term Medicaid has specific income eligibility requirements for the Medicaid applicant (a current cap of $2,163 per month). There are also limits on the total level of financial resources that the Medicaid applicant may have.

HOW CAN AN ELDER LAW ATTORNEY HELP WITH MEDICAID ELIGIBILITY?

If you and or your loved one is seeking Medicaid coverage for long-term care and don’t meet income and or resource caps, an Elder Law Attorney can potentially help you and your loved one achieve Medicaid eligibility while also preserving assets, especially for the spouse not seeking long-term care Medicaid benefits (often referred to as the “community spouse”). The rules concerning Medicaid eligibility can often be complex and an Elder Law attorney can often successfully navigate these complexities.
