Protecting Your Assets When Applying For Medicaid
At The Law Office of Denise D. Nordheimer, Esquire, LLC, we know that it can be overwhelming to navigate the Medicaid system by yourself. The forms can be difficult to complete, and it can be unclear what types of documentation you need to submit with your application. Making a mistake can cost you and your family dearly if your application is rejected.
For years, our attorneys have helped residents throughout Delaware and Pennsylvania secure Medicaid benefits and protect their assets in the process. Whether you need assistance with advanced planning or crisis planning, we are able to create a strategy that allows you to retain your property so that you can distribute it as you wish.
Taking A Proactive Approach
It is wise to develop a Medicaid plan years in advance. In addition to helping you securing your peace of mind, this plan can play a key role in helping you avoid penalties or a benefits rejection at a critical time. When you meet with our lawyers, we shall study your financial records, titles and deeds to determine which legal instruments can help you retain your assets and qualify for benefits.
We offer extensive estate planning services, so we know which trusts, insurance policies or other tools to utilize to safeguard the things that matter to you. If you need to create a “spend down” strategy to qualify for benefits, we can help you structure this plan so that you avoid getting penalized for transferring assets during the look-back period.
Applying For Benefits During A Crisis
If your elderly loved one is facing a health crisis that requires immediate care at a nursing home, we shall act promptly to secure assistance. Our lawyers shall remain by your side as you file for Medicaid benefits for your loved one and review the application before you submit it. If necessary, we shall explore all options to preserve marital assets for your loved one’s spouse.
Although time is crucial during a Medicaid crisis, we shall work methodically through the issue to ensure that all matters are handled correctly. You can depend on us to shoulder your legal burden while you tend to your loved ones.
