How We Can Help

Some people eventually establish Medicaid eligibility without the help of an attorney. However, it can be a frustrating and uncertain process. Our law firm can help in the following ways:

  • By helping you decide whether or not becoming eligible for Medicaid is right for you or your loved one. It is not for everyone.
  • If Medicaid eligibility is appropriate, by showing you ways of qualifying sooner rather than later
  • By helping you avoid small mistakes that cost big money (because each month’s delay is likely to cost $5,000 to $7,000 or more in nursing home expenses)
  • By helping you understand complex rules and formulas you need to know, and keeping you from wasting time with strategies that don’t work and information you don’t need
  • By correcting errors by Medicaid workers that could cost months of eligibility
  • By helping identify and implement strategies such as Lady Bird Deeds and Transfer on Death Deeds to protect property from the Medicaid estate recovery program—to keep the entire value of your home, ranch or farm in the family rather than its being sold in probate to pay back Medicaid benefits
  • By giving you the peace of mind of knowing you are properly carrying out the responsibility your family has placed in you
