Planning For The Future And Dealing With The Present
Many people come to us after they have followed the direction of hospital social workers and nursing home admissions personnel. They are told they will need to pay privately for necessary nursing home care because of the size of the loved one's estate. They attempt to spend down assets in an effort to become eligible for Medicaid, frequently making critical mistakes that ultimately jeopardize Medicaid eligibility.
Forget everything you have been told about Medicaid and about paying for nursing home care. Nursing home companies make more money when a resident pays privately than when expenses are paid by Medicaid. It is in their interests for you to pay privately. Therefore, there is no incentive to show you asset protection techniques that may result in nursing home expenses being covered by Medicaid instead of handing over your loved one's estate.
Specific Medicaid rules pertain to coverage for long-term care in a nursing home. Medicaid rules and requirements are complex and constantly changing. It is crucial to consult with an experienced elder law attorney who knows Michigan Medicaid laws and who is dedicated to maximizing your asset protection strategies when a loved one needs nursing home care.
