About Us

A significant amount of Americans need long-term care in nursing homes and many wind up going broke trying to pay for the high costs of care.

Many think that Medicare will pay for the costs of the nursing home, but they are surprised to find out that the most Medicare will cover is the first 100 day and not even the full amount.

There’s a lot of misunderstanding about what Medicaid is and how it helps people who need long-term care.  Most people think Medicaid is a program for the poor only.

The truth is, Medicaid can help pay for long-term care and does not require the patient or the patient’s spouse to be completely broke.

In order to receive financial assistance through Medicaid, a patient and the patient’s spouse have to spend down their “countable” assets.  In most states it’s down to $2,000 for a single patient.  The formula gets more complicated if you’re married with most states letting you keep about half of your assets, up to a maximum amount.

However, there are classifications of assets which are automatically protected and don’t need to be spent down in order to qualify for assistance.  In addition, there are certain assets that can be legally converted into protected assets.  The process of converting “available” assets into “protected” assets is known as Medicaid planning.

While that sounds simple, the process can be rather complicated.

What assets are safe?  How do you convert assets without causing a penalty?  The answers to these questions require someone who understands the system and knows how to deliver results.

Unfortunately, many people to try to navigate the complicated bureaucracy by themselves.

You don’t have to face this issue alone.  We can help.
