If you or a loved one is applying for NY Medicaid, our attorneys at Lamson & Cutner can help. The Medicaid application process can be complex and confusing, but our attorneys have extensive experience navigating the steps and can assist in making the process go smoothly.
Many people are not aware of the opportunity they have to gain eligibility for NY Medicaid benefits, which include both health care programs and services, and most significantly, long-term care. Medicaid assistance can pay for both in-home care and assisted living, as well as nursing home care. Without Medicaid assistance, the costs of long-term care can be financially devastating. Too many people “spend down” their entire life savings and are left unnecessarily impoverished by the time they apply for Medicaid benefits.
With proper planning and the use of proven legal strategies, most NY residents can qualify for NY Medicaid without losing all of their assets. This typically involves transferring the ownership of your assets into a trust or other legal structure. The earlier you can plan for your care needs, the better outcome you can obtain. Lamson & Cutner’s experienced and compassionate attorneys work hard to protect our clients and ensure they can afford the care they may need now or in the future. Even if you have applied for Medicaid and been denied, we may be able to help. Click here to learn more about Denial of Medicaid.
Medicaid Planning involves taking the important steps needed both to protect your assets and income, and, at the same time, to become eligible for benefits.
