Your Trusted Guides In Medicaid/Long-Term Care Planning
The costs of long term care, at home or in a nursing facility, have reached the levels that only the wealthy can afford them. Most in need of long-term health care must turn to Medicaid to be cover the home health attendants or nursing home care.
Unfortunately, qualifying for Medicaid can be confusing and one misstep could lead to a denial of coverage by Medicaid. If not prepared or properly guided, you could end up unnecessarily spending large portions of your life savings for your care before you obtain Medicaid coverage.
Because you or your loved one likely spent years of hard work building assets, owning a home and otherwise trying to get to a financially stable position, risking all of this without being able to pass some on to your loved ones would be devastating.
