One of the main concerns of individuals seeking Medi-Cal benefits is the possibility of losing assets in order to meet eligibility requirements. It is important to remember that there may be options available to protect assets and still qualify for the California Medicaid program.
If you have questions about shielding your assets from Medi-Cal, we invite you to schedule a free consultation at our law firm. A California Medi-Cal asset protection lawyer can explain your options and what benefits may be available. Contact the Law Offices of Alice A. Salvo online today to learn more.
Medi-Cal Exempt Property and Asset Protection
Individuals seeking Medi-Cal benefits in California may be able to keep exempt assets that will not affect their eligibility for benefits. These assets may include:
- Household items
- Personal items
- Burial arrangements
Medi-Cal asset protection is especially important for individuals who have a spouse entering a nursing home. Our law firm can help file a petition in court to transfer assets and income of the spouse entering a nursing home to the spouse who is staying at home. This may also help qualify the spouse in the nursing home for Medi-Cal benefits. Please contact our law firm to learn how this approach can benefit you.
