John R. Frazier J.D., LL.M., MBA is a particularly experienced Medicaid planning attorney who has helped over 3,500 clients obtain coverage from Medicaid for their assisted living or skilled nursing facility (also often called a nursing home) stay who are just like you.

Maybe you are not faced with immediate nursing home placement. Maybe you need to go into an assisted living facility now.  Maybe you have assets over $250,000. Maybe you want to “pre-plan” for the future so your assets are legally structured to allow for qualifying for Medicaid coverage if/when needed in the future thus assuring your legacy to your family.

Attorney Frazier understands the problems facing seniors today and he knows how to use the current laws to help solve these issues. Based in Largo, Florida, Attorney Frazier can help you. With almost half of our clients to date, we have worked with them remotely without them ever coming to our office.

If you’re like many families faced with moving into an assisted living facility or placement in a skilled nursing facility (also often called a nursing home) you may feel as though you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place. You probably can’t afford up to $100,000 per year for you or your loved one to live in a skilled nursing facility or $50,000 (or more) a year for an assisted living facility. If you or your loved one is going to be placed in an assisted living facility (ALF) unfortunately, the waiting list for ALF Medicaid coverage is so long it is maybe unobtainable. That said, an experienced elder law attorney knows a legal way to avoid or bypass the Medicaid assisted living waitlist in many cases. Almost certainly, you do not want to use your life savings on an ALF or nursing home with nothing left for your family. Thus going broke from the costs.

Yet Medicaid has determined

you or the family thinks that your loved one has too many assets or too much income to qualify for this much-needed assistance.

That’s where Attorney Frazier comes in.

His familiarity with elder law and over 3,500 successful Medicaid planning cases allow him to help you and your family determine how to (legally) get your loved one within the income and asset guidelines set up by Medicaid.

He has completed over 3,500 Medicaid cases

and helped seniors get the much needed financial assistance from Medicaid that they need in order to live in a quality assisted living facility or long-term care facility.

The Unlicensed Practice of Law (UPL) in Medicaid Planning is a significantly growing problem. So much so, that both the Florida Bar and the Supreme Court of Florida have taken action regarding this area of concern.

This book was written by Attorney Frazier and two other Florida elder law lawyers to help you avoid some of the dangers in Medicaid Planning. You will find in this book and more:

  • The dangers to both the nursing home – and their residents – from working with unlicensed, unregulated, uninsured, and untrained non-attorney Medicaid Planners.

  • Nursing home referral liability.

  • Who regulates non-attorney Medicaid Planners in Florida.

  • Financial exploitation of the elderly
