Michigan Medicaid planning attorneys Nancy C. Nawrocki and Lisa H. Beatty have helped countless clients qualify for Medicaid and avoid depleting their entire estate in paying for home health care, nursing home care, assisted living care, or other health care.

Michigan Medicaid Laws

Medicaid programs are governed by state legislatures. While each state's program receives federal funding (in addition to state funding), each state has distinct rules regarding asset spend-down, eligibility requirements, penalty provisions, payback provisions and much more. Therefore, it is critical to hire a Brighton elder law attorney who is fluent in Michigan's constantly evolving Medicaid laws.

Just because a Medicaid planning strategy was effective in another state — or in Michigan just a few years ago — does not mean it will be an effective strategy in your situation under current law. You need an attorney who is dedicated to Michigan Medicaid eligibility and asset preservation.

Protect Your Home from an Estate Recovery Claim

All state Medicaid programs have an estate recovery provision, a payback provision, that entitles the state to recover for benefits provided once the beneficiary or beneficiary's surviving spouse has died. With the cost of nursing home care, assisted-living care, in-home care and other services provided, the state's claim can quickly deplete the entire estate, leaving nothing for the decedent's loved ones. As required by Federal law, Michigan Medicaid laws contain an estate recovery provision or payback provision, so it is important to consider the implications of estate recovery in your long-term care planning.

At the Nawrocki Center, we not only develop strategies that help clients qualify for Medicaid benefits, but our Brighton Medicaid lawyers also help them implement estate and Medicaid planning techniques that allow them to preserve assets, including their home.
