About Nursing Home Medicaid Planning
The February 2006 changes in Medicaid eligibility laws have made it more difficult to ensure that all your assets do not go to the nursing home. With skillful planning, however, it is often possible to preserve some assets for heirs. Consulting with attorneys like us who are well-versed in Medicaid planning techniques is vitally important if you have assets you wish to protect.
As soon as it becomes evident that you or a loved one is likely going to require long-term skilled nursing care, it is helpful to then consult with an attorney. The sooner planning can begin, the more assets you will likely be able to preserve.
