Don’t Let Health Care Interfere With Your Estate Plan
As a person gets older, the need for long-term care becomes more likely. But without proper planning, nursing home and in-home care can quickly deplete a person’s life savings, leaving little to no inheritance for loved ones and family members. Sudden and catastrophic illnesses only make matters worse by forcing an elderly individual to make the tough decision to liquidate their assets to pay for medical care.
At Koldin Law Center, P.C., we take pride in helping individuals and their families prevent situations like this. With the help of our skilled lawyers, clients throughout central New York can secure Medicaid benefits that can help offset the expense of long-term health care.
In addition to handling Medicaid applications, we can also establish useful estate planning tools that can help seniors protect their assets for future generations.
Maintaining Medicaid Eligibility With A Proper Estate Plan
Because of the complexity of Medicaid laws and the fact that they are frequently changing, it can be hard to tell when you’re making estate planning decisions that could put your Medicaid eligibility at risk.
At Koldin Law Center, P.C., we stay up to date on the law, giving us the information you need to make informed decisions about:
- Asset protection through irrevocable living trusts and other estate planning tools
- Your Medicaid application, including how to apply and your eligibility for benefits while in a nursing home
We also explain the time-line in which decisions should be made and whether you will need to wait for Medicaid eligibility because of an estate planning decision.
