Elder law is an area of legal practice that works in tandem with estate planning. Even if you have not put estate planning documents (will, trust, power of attorney, healthcare proxy, living will, etc.) together, there are still strategies that can be leveraged to help you qualify for Medicaid Benefits, Medicaid Waivers, Veterans Benefits, and more. Our services are often sought to help families better manage long-term care costs for loved ones while depleting as little of their hard-earned assets.
Benefits can be very difficult to apply for and appeal. After using our benefits team, our clients learn that “non-eligibility” usually is not a word that applies to their situation; they simply needed seasoned guidance in completing applications, managing asset allocation, and abiding by strict timelines.
A conversation around Medicaid can go many different directions. Whether you need help with benefits, a waiver, or are interested in how Medicaid can be used to supplement a strategy you already have, there is not a “one-size-fits-all” answer. We encourage you to set a meeting with our Medicaid Benefits Specialist to share more about your unique goals. Your situation will need a personalized solution and we look forward to helping you home in on the best options that support your goals.
Aid and attendance can be difficult to obtain for both Veterans and their spouses. Understanding the qualifications, eligibility requirements, and timelines can quickly become your full-time job. Rather than spending your precious time trying to become the subject matter expert on this topic, our team would love to help you navigate these benefits. We may even find that you qualify for additional benefits or uncover more ways you can enhance your plans for aging.
