ELDER LAW & MEDICAID QUALIFICATION
Florida Elder Law Attorneys
Elder Law focuses on advocating for the elderly and their loved ones.
It includes the importance of Medicaid Planning and Qualification; Wills and Trusts; “Special Needs” Planning for Adults (or Minors); Probate Avoidance; Durable Powers of Attorney; Health Care Directives, and much more.
It also includes a wide range of legal services for defraying the high costs of skilled nursing home care. The Florida Medicaid system is the largest payor of skilled nursing home monthly expenses. Unfortunately, the eligibility rules for Medicaid Benefits are vast and complex.
We utilize existing law to convert a client’s “countable assets” into “non-countable assets” so our clients can preserve their family’s wealth and still qualify for Medicaid Benefits before their assets are depleted.
We provide the guidance on navigating the confusing and complex Medicaid regulations like: The 5-Year Look Back Period; Maximum Asset Limits; Maximum Income Limits; Disqualification Penalties; Payback Provisions; Medicaid Estate Recovery Act; and more. We also assist with nursing home and facility resident rights and help file nursing home claims.
