Virginia Beach Medicaid Planning Attorneys
Assisting Clients with Their Long-Term Care Needs
At TrustBuilders Law Group, we understand that the high cost of long-term care is an important issue for seniors and their families. The fact is, most seniors will likely require some form of long-term care in their lifetime. Despite this, many seniors are unprepared for the significant financial burdens Medicaid will place on their family’s hard-earned savings. Financial devastation looms large for a family facing ongoing care at a rate of $10,000 or more per month, which is why you should consult with a Medicaid planning attorney at our firm to discuss your situation.
Why Clients Choose TrustBuilders Law Group
The experienced and talented elder law attorneys at our firm routinely work with individuals and their caregivers to guide them through the challenging financial and legal decisions that need to be addressed as seniors age and require ongoing care. Although there are federal and state benefit programs designed to assist the elderly and disabled, far too many people fail to understand how these programs function and what is required for eligibility. TrustBuilders Law Group is committed to working closely with our clients to ensure they have an in-depth understanding of their various legal options so they can protect assets and qualify for benefits that will help pay for long-term care.
Medicaid Eligibility Assistance
Medicaid is a joint federal-state program that provides medical assistance to low-income individuals who are 65 or older, disabled, or blind. Medicaid is the single largest payer of nursing home bills in the United States and serves as the option of last resort for people who have no other way to finance their long-term care. In addition to Medicaid eligibility rules that vary from state to state, there are federal minimum standards and guidelines that must be observed if you want to qualify for this program. The complex eligibility requirements for Medicaid benefits requires much more than simply reviewing one’s bank statements. There is a myriad of regulations involving look-back periods, income caps, transfer penalties, and waiting periods to plan around. Our legal team is prepared to put our skills to work for you by drafting a detailed Medicaid eligibility strategy that is tailored to your unique situation.
Pre-Medicaid Planning Services
