Elder law attorneys focus on matters that are of particular interest to senior citizens. Long-term care costs are at the top of the list.
According to the United States Department of Health and Human Services, most people who are reaching the age of 65 will eventually need living assistance. Nursing homes and assisted living communities are very expensive, and Medicare does not pay for long-term care.
Medicaid is a need-based government health insurance program that will pay for long-term care. The Medicaid program actually pays for most of the nursing home expenses that are incurred by senior citizens.
Elder law attorneys help clients position their assets with future Medicaid eligibility in mind. It is possible to divest yourself of assets in a measured fashion well in advance of applying for eligibility.
If you do things optimally, you may be able to obtain eligibility without losing a great deal in the process.
