Medicaid is a joint federal, state and city program that provides medical assistance for persons with low income and limited assets and who are over 65, blind or disabled. Once the financial eligibility threshold is met, Medicaid covers all types of medical care, including hospital care, doctor bills, nursing home coverage, home care and prescriptions.

We understand that it can be confusing and frustrating to be forced to put so much effort into planning for an assistance program, but it is necessary. With the rising cost of care facilities, the government often looks to individuals to contribute to these costs. Therefore, the more assets you have, the greater your ultimate contribution. We will look at your finances, including personal savings, assets, 401(k) accounts, IRAs or other pension plans or retirement accounts.
It is not uncommon for individuals to reach a certain level of panic and begin giving away assets or “spending down” their finances. It is crucial that you schedule a consultation with an attorney at our office before making any of these dramatic financial moves. Clients trust our firm for honesty and realistic solutions — every client is different and every plan is unique.
