The process of qualifying for Medicaid to pay for the cost of long-term care, is challenging. Most people think that their loved one must be impoverished before Medicaid will provide benefits. This is only true for those who have failed to plan. At the Voeller Law Firm, we are generally able to help married couples save 100% of their assets, and still get one spouse qualified for Medicaid. For single individuals, we can generally save their primary residence and about 55% of their liquid assets. Pre-planning (to structure your affairs in anticipation of a potential nursing home stay) and crisis planning (for those who have failed to plan in advance) are both available through the Voeller Law Firm.
