Experienced Medicaid Planning Lawyers
Long-term care can be expensive, costing up to $15,000 a month for some nursing homes. As such, Medicaid planning is essential to protect your assets and prevent financial ruin as a result of long-term medical care.
It is important that you act proactively, putting in place a care plan before a crisis presents itself. Medicaid planning can include a variety of different steps to rearrange your assets and keep them from being considered for Medicaid purposes, including irrevocable trusts. We can help you determine what type of trust is right for your personal financial situation.
