Statewide Medicaid Planning and Elder Law Attorney
When it comes to aging family members, we are passionate about ensuring that loved ones will be well cared for. It is also important to know that the posterity and future your family has worked for is secure.
As a Florida elder law attorney, I help seniors across the state who are in need of nursing home care to become eligible for Medicaid benefits in order to pay for long-term care costs.
Wherever you live in Florida, we can assist you.
Working in association with the Law Offices of Joseph F. Pippen Jr. & Associates, our law firm has multiple offices throughout Florida, enabling clients statewide to benefit from the full resources of the firm.
Seniors and their families face two very important questions:
- Have seniors made preparations to be cared for?
- Are families ready to become long-term caregivers, or the payers of nursing home expenses?
Clearly, the highest cost facing us all as we age is the price of long-term care and skilled nursing facility stays:
- Costs for round-the-clock in-home care can quickly surpass $400 per day.
- Florida assisted living expenses can be more than $3,100 a month.
- Florida nursing home care averages over $7,900.00 per month statewide (semi-private rooms).
- Most Florida seniors cannot afford to purchase private long term care insurance; others may not qualify for long term care insurance because of age or health complications.
It is easy to see how elders and their families will run out of savings and assets, trying to pay for long-term care without insurance, or without public benefits.
Many people do not think that they are eligible for the public Medicaid program. Other Floridians believe that they must “spend down” their life’s savings to qualify for Florida Medicaid benefits.
Is it possible to preserve your money and assets and still qualify for Medicaid? The answer is, yes.
Florida Medicaid as a Source of Payment for Long Term Care
Medicaid planning with a Florida elder law attorney can allow you to legally and ethically restructure your finances, assets and estate so that they are protected. When the time comes to pay for nursing home costs, you or your loved one would qualify for Medicaid.
The sooner you begin planning, the more assets you may be able to protect. I am often able to assist those in need of assistance in crisis situations as well.
