Many people ask, “Why should I work with an elder law attorney?” At Amicus Law Firm, our group of devoted and widely respected Medicaid planning attorneys knows elder law is more than just our job. It requires a passion for helping others and a commitment to honesty and integrity. Our elderly clients and their families often bear the burden of financial and medical hardship on top of having to consider nursing home care. Whatever your family’s situation, our team of attorneys is dedicated to figuring out a long-term care plan that you can trust and afford.

Long-term nursing home care can be astronomically expensive, with some facilities charging upwards of $8,000 per month. If you, your spouse, or parent require long-term nursing home care, it can be a burdensome process to figure out how to manage the costs. These costs can increase over time as the individual’s health may decline, and additional care or support may become necessary. In dire circumstances, money that was intended to be gifted to heirs or future generations may become consumed by long-term nursing care costs. When you consult with an elder law attorney, they can provide all the information necessary to help determine if you qualify for Medicaid.

Is It Necessary to Hire a Medicaid Planner?

Many families wonder if it’s necessary or beneficial to hire a Medicaid planner. Qualified legal counsel can discuss your options for Medicaid assistance and can help determine if you qualify. Amicus Law Firm attorneys are happy to discuss any complex factors of Medicaid planning in an easy-to-understand and accessible way.

The Medicaid planning process begins with a consultation and assessment of your health.
It’s crucial to consult with a Medicaid planning lawyer early on if you are seeking financial assistance for nursing home care. If there is even a slight mistake in Medicaid planning, your coverage could be denied. The application can be time-consuming, and the review process can take quite some time. If you or a loved one have been denied Medicaid coverage, don’t panic. Qualified legal counsel can represent an elderly client and review this denial of benefits, possibly granting an appeal. As always, the best course of action is to thoroughly discuss your situation with an attorney to achieve the results you deserve. It can be too complex and confusing to handle these situations alone.

At Amicus Law Firm, our goal is to simplify the Medicaid process and provide helpful legal counsel that changes lives. Your family is struggling enough with taking care of loved ones and making sure there’s more than enough money to do so. Your elderly loved one has worked hard throughout their lifetime to generate their savings. Elder law and Medicaid planning attorneys can strive to ensure these assets are protected and are not at risk of being consumed by nursing home costs. Our attorneys will work tirelessly to protect your family from ever-increasing nursing home costs and promises to deliver the best options possible for every case.
