Let Us Navigate The Complex Waters Of Medicare And Medicaid Services For You

Elder law is complex and easily misunderstood by those going through the process alone. If you are faced with a Medicare or Medicaid issue, consult with an elder law attorney. You may qualify for health care benefits, and we can provide you with information on how to assess your unique situation. Benefits for Medicare and Medicaid are often misunderstood, but contain basic characteristics, including:

  • Medicare is a government-sponsored insurance program for elderly or disabled individuals. Regardless of income or assets, most seniors qualify for the program.
  • Medicaid is a means-tested government program for long-term nursing home care or community home-based care. Medicaid planning involves asset transfer requirements and other rules of eligibility.

Medicaid "Spend Down" Requirements
If you have heard about the Medicaid spend-down requirement but are unsure of what that means for your family, let us answer your questions. New York has specific requirements regarding the amount you can hold in assets and the "look-back" period for when the applicant eliminated assets for Medicaid planning. Too many clients believe "the government will take all my money," but nothing could be further from the truth. Asset preservation is always possible but only with guidance from an elder law expert.
