Medicaid Eligibility And Planning
Growing old is a certainty. Health care and financial aspects involved with aging should be a priority. Using your family assets to provide the care for both spouses may involve the use of Medicaid benefits. Our Medicaid planning lawyers understand the eligibility requirements. They can develop a plan to ensure the best use of the funds available, as well as the public assistance available through Medicaid in the event you, your spouse or your loved one needs nursing home or other long-term care. Therefore, it is a priority to prepare for the health care and financial aspects involved with aging. Some assets and income are exempt when determining Medicaid eligibility. With counsel from our knowledgeable lawyers, and the development of an asset protection plan, you may become eligible for nursing home Medicaid in Florida.
