Helping You Pay for Long-Term Care
Nursing home costs are extremely expensive and can quickly drain a family's financial resources. However, there are public benefit options that can help pay for some or all of a family member's long-term care.
Medi-Cal is California's version of the federal Medicaid program. Our Los Angeles Medi-Cal eligibility lawyer can determine whether you qualify for these important benefits. If you are not initially eligible for Medi-Cal, we can work on a plan that may help you become eligible.
Helping You Understand Medi-Cal Qualifications
Our firm has extensive experience with the Medi-Cal application process. In order to qualify for Medi-Cal, your income and assets must not exceed the limit set by state law. Even if you do not qualify for Medi-Cal on paper, there are options, such as a trust, that may help you meet the eligibility requirements. We will work closely with you to determine if there are any estate planning options that will protect your assets while making it possible to qualify for these important benefits.
Dedicated To Preserving Your Assets
We keep ourselves informed regarding any changes to the law. This allows us to provide a thorough evaluation of your financial situation and explain which assets may be exempt. We can also help you look further down the road with our Medi-Cal planning and Medi-Cal asset protection services.
Our attorneys will help guide you through the extensive application process every step of the way. If you do not meet the eligibility requirements or have your application denied, we can help you appeal the decision and will fight to get a court order that will help pay for a loved one's long-term care.
