The Medicaid application process can be a difficult one to manage without proper guidance and a thorough understanding of the regulations. If you or a loved one is in a skilled care facility, managing the expense can be frightening. The average local private pay facility costs $8,000 - $12,000 / month. Many people are able to retain significant assets while accessing Medicaid to pay for the majority of care expenses, and we can help you structure your assets in order to protect the maximum you can legally keep. We can assist you in the crisis when a placement has already occurred or discuss advance planning options if it looks like a loved one may need long term care due to stroke or a diagnosis of a debilitating or life-threatening disease. While Medicaid only covers nursing home expenses, there are state and county programs focused on assisted living facilities.


What is Medicaid?

The application is a lengthy process with 3-5 years of financial information needed to apply. Our Medicaid Team is made up of professionals who help you navigate the detailed process to implement this benefit as quickly as possible.
