Long Island Medicaid Attorneys Help You Qualify for Medicaid to Get Care Covered
Long Island Medicaid attorneys at Mark S. Eghrari & Associates, PLLC can help you to determine if you are going to need to make a Medicaid plan.
Most people need a Medicaid plan because of the coverage limitations associated with Medicare. Medicare does not pay anything for long-term care at home or for nursing home care unless you need skilled nursing care. Skilled nursing care is care provided by a medical professional or someone with training, such as inserting an IV or changing surgical bandages. The care that sends most people to a nursing home is custodial care, which involves basic help with routine activities of daily living and which can be provided by anyone even without specialized medical knowledge.
Nursing home care and long-term care are both very expensive, so you will need to be able to find a third party to pay for these types of care if you don’t want to impoverish yourself and spend all of your hard-earned money or property. Buying long-term care insurance is usually prohibitively expensive and the policies may have so many coverage limitations that they don’t actually pay for the care you need. Medicaid, on the other hand, will pay for this care but only if you are eligible for Medicaid.
Medicaid eligibility is based on having limited financial resources, so if you have too many assets, you won’t qualify for coverage. Long Island Medicaid attorneys can help you to structure ownership of your assets so you are able to get the coverage you need without impoverishing yourself. You should work with an attorney to make certain that your wealth is safe and can serve as your legacy and will not all have to be spent if you become sick or hurt and must get care by home health aides or must move into a nursing home.
