Medicaid Planners: Providing Critical Help in a Time of Need
It happened. You’ve seen it happen to others, but you never thought it would happen to you. Your parent is in a nursing home and it’s unlikely that they’ll be able to go back to living on their own. What’s next? How do you pay for their care? What resources are available to help? You’ve heard about Medicaid, but how do you apply – and is your parent even eligible?
Nursing Home Medicaid is a complex, challenging and often outright frustrating program. Complete with miles of red tape and overworked government employees, going through the application process can feel like taking on a full-time job. Luckily there are professionals who can help: Medicaid Planners.
A Medicaid Planner knows Medicaid policy and can help you navigate the entire application process. From asset preservation to spend-downs and gifting to insurance coverage, planners know all the ins and outs of eligibility.
We develop plans to restructure assets for Medicaid eligibility. We help ensure your loved ones’ assets are as protected as possible or spent-down in a way that benefits them – without having to exhaust their life savings paying for care.
We advocate with Medicaid caseworkers on your behalf and do most of the leg work involved in getting your parent or loved one approved for Medicaid.
Working with a Medicaid Planner gives applicants the best chance at getting approved. When you face the daunting task of applying for Nursing Home Medicaid, call the professionals at Sensible Senior Planning for a free consultation to see how we can help.
