Nursing Home Application Services We Offer
Medicaid Asset Protection
A Medicaid asset protection trust is a vital tool in ensuring your home and assets are protected. Ideally, proactive planning in excess of 5 years is preferred. However other special planning techniques are available, including promissory note planning, when circumstances come up that do not allow for advance planning. Our experienced Estate Planning attorneys skilled in Medicaid can assist in developing the asset protection plan that is right for you or your loved one, given your unique circumstances.
Medicaid Nursing Home Application
Applying for Nursing Home Medicaid is a complex process involving a “5 year lookback” and the audit of 5 years of statements for all financial institutions for an applicant and spouse. Certain asset expenditures and transfers need to be properly explained to be deemed exempt to avoid the risk of a costly penalty. Improper planning without the assistance of an experienced Medicaid attorney can result in an unnecessary delay in coverage and the loss of thousands of dollars and proper care your loved one in need. If you or a loved one is in need of a higher level of care, Fratello Law will help you make the right financial decisions, using special planning techniques to protect assets and complete the necessary application and paperwork in order to have nursing home expenses covered by Medicaid.
