The average cost of nursing home care in Texas is almost $60,000 per year! On top of this, Medicare and health insurance don’t cover nursing home care. There are ways to get financial assistance, but without proper legal planning in place, you will generally have to spend-down and deplete all of your hard-earned assets before you qualify for assistance. Fortunately there are strategies available that can be used to help you preserve your assets for your spouse and loved ones, but you have to be proactive.
At the Voeller Law Firm, we can provide strategies to help clients save up to 100% of their assets, and still be qualified to receive Medicaid assistance with nursing home costs.
In Texas it is illegal for someone who is not a licensed attorney to advertise assistance with qualifying for Medicaid benefits – even if they “associate with an attorney”. Qualifying for benefits can involve complex issues that can have far reaching financial, legal, and tax implications. Proper planning requires a high level of expertise and legal advice. At the Voeller Law Firm you will always work directly with a licensed attorney throughout the process.
