Learn About Your Options for Medicaid Planning in Florida

The reality is that many older adults need home health care or to reside in a nursing home toward the end of life. In some cases involving dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, you might be physically healthy and need to live in a nursing home for many years. It is no secret that long-term care in the United States is costly, and even one year of care can deplete your hard-earned assets and estate.

Needing long-term care should not negate all of your hard work and wishes to leave something to your children and other beneficiaries. Fortunately, with careful planning, you can find ways to cover the costs of long-term care while protecting your assets. You should not wait to contact the Florida Medicaid planning lawyers at The Legacy Law Firm today.

Qualifying for Medicaid in Florida

Many nursing homes accept Medicaid benefits to pay the bill for residents. However, not everyone qualifies for Medicaid benefits, as there are strict eligibility standards based on your finances. You only qualify for Medicaid in Florida if you are below the following thresholds:

Many people are above these thresholds and, therefore, might rely on their assets to cover the costs of their care, quickly using up their savings and having nothing left.

Helping You Qualify for Medicaid in Florida

There are complex legal tools that can help people in Florida qualify for Medicaid without first using up their assets. For example:

You might think you can simply give away your assets to your beneficiaries early. However, the government has a long look-back period, and asset transfers might disqualify you from benefits for a penalty period. In addition, if a relative is holding your assets for you, they might pass away, become incapacitated, get divorced, or file bankruptcy, all of which can cause you to lose your assets.

Instead of trying to figure out ways to cheat the system, you should discuss your options for Medicaid planning with our legal team. We have helped many clients qualify for Medicaid without jeopardizing their estate.
