The decision to enter a nursing home is extremely emotional and requires a great deal of consideration. At Strauss Attorneys, PLLC, located in Asheville and Hendersonville, North Carolina, we believe that the stress of your decision should not be further complicated by money matters.

Medicaid Planning to Protect Your Assets

While long-term nursing home care is expensive, Medicaid can help cover these costs if you qualify. Part of this qualification may hinge upon developing a proper estate plan which can help you meet the requisite asset limits. Even if you are already in a nursing home, Strauss Attorneys, PLLC, can help. Our Certified Elder Law Attorney (CELA), Larry S. Hartley, provides clients with a thorough explanation of the laws related to Medicaid for long term care, as well as careful attention to details.

Proactive and Detailed Medicaid Planning

A single error in Medicaid planning can prove to be incredibly costly. If you fail to qualify, you may be forced to sell your home or use other hard-earned assets to cover the entire cost of your nursing home care. Moreover, the government can even seek reimbursement for any Medicaid benefits you received in error and pursue Medicaid Estate Recovery after death. Rest assured we will take the time to inform you of your options, answer your questions and help you take careful and proactive steps toward obtaining Medicaid benefits.

Complex and Challenging Medicaid Planning

While Medicaid planning and related elder law matters are complex and present many challenges, we have the significant experience and in-depth knowledge needed to overcome those obstacles. Why lose assets and money? Why deplete your estate when there are legal methods available to allow Medicaid to cover some of the costs of your nursing home care? Contact us now.
