Tampa Medicaid Planning Attorney
Through personalized legal counsel, Tampa Medicaid planning attorney John R. Frazier can help you create a well-thought-out plan that will give you the resources you need to pay for long-term care for your aging family members.
The cost of caring for older parents and loved ones can result in dire financial and personal consequences for a family. One year of nursing home care in the Tampa Bay area averages $89,425 for a semi-private room, and $102,200 for a private room. Even assisted living costs run between $3,000 to $6,000 per month.
At a rate of $7,500 or more per month, financial ruin is no exaggeration for the family of a senior facing long-term care. Without the right help, spouses and children can be left impoverished—often believing they have no other option than to spend their own savings to care for elder or disabled loved ones. Yet this does not have to be the case.
Caring for aging family members often requires Medicaid planning.
Being approved for Florida Medicaid is often the only option available to many families, even those with substantial income and assets. The public Medicaid program assists the elderly and disabled with the costs of nursing home care and other long-term care expenses.
Medicaid is a joint federal and state health insurance program. Medicaid planning with a qualified Florida lawyer is within the framework of all relevant Florida statutes and federal law.
Tampa Medicaid planning attorney John Frazier works with you to protect you and your family’s assets and to cut the immense cost of nursing home care through
- planning for Medicaid eligibility, and
- putting the right asset protection plan in place for your family.
Plan for Peace of Mind.
Medicaid pays the cost of room and board in an assisted living facility or skilled nursing home, along with treatments that are part of the facility’s routine patient care. Beneficiaries are not required to make co-payments.
Medicaid benefits also cover many personal care items, and services such as transportation for doctors’ visits, laundry and meals.
There is no time limit on Medicaid nursing home coverage. When a beneficiary goes into a nursing home, his or her spouse is still able to keep the home, car and many of their assets.
