Stamford Medicaid Planning and Application Lawyer

Eligibility for Medicaid is based on need and subject to income and asset guidelines, which may change annually. I have extensive experience with Connecticut and New York Medicaid information; I will explain the rules for eligibility and develop a Medicaid plan to qualify for Medicaid benefits to assist with long-term medical care at home, in assisted living or in a nursing home.

Several questions may arise when seeking Medicaid benefits:

  • What is Medicaid? Medicaid is a government program based on need, which provides coverage for medical costs and long-term health care to those who meet specific financial criteria.
  • Do I need Medicare and Medicaid? Medicare covers only the cost of short-term health care. Private health insurance is also unlikely to cover the costs of long-term health care. As a result, Medicaid is often necessary to cover these costs. Medicaid does not pay for assisted living.
  • What are the income requirements to qualify for Medicaid? Income levels for eligibility change annually.
  • Is the nursing home entitled to my family’s assets if we cannot afford the cost and don’t have long-term health care insurance ? Medicaid is subject to complicated and strict rules, which will change according to the applicant’s financial assets. It is often possible to preserve assets.
  • Can I save my house ? In many situations, yes. There are special rules that can help protect the family home for many clients. I can advise on the best techniques to protect this important asset.
  • What is a penalty period and how does it apply to my situation? A penalty period, during which you are ineligible for chronic care Medicaid, is imposed when you have made substantial financial gifts in the five years before you applied for Medicaid.

I can explain your options and the requirements for eligibility and advise you on the necessary planning to qualify for Medicaid services.
