Medicaid Planning and Applications in New York
Medicaid offers health care coverage for long term care needs to people who meet certain requirements in regard to the person’s resources and assets, income, age, and disability. Medicaid is county, state, and federally funded, and requirements of eligibility vary widely between counties and states. In order to qualify for Medicaid benefits, you need to have very little in assets and need to meet certain low-income requirements. There are exceptions to the rules as to what assets you are entitled to keep and how much income you will be able to access while still receiving Medicaid long term care services. This emphasizes the importance of consulting with a New York Medicaid Attorney when deciphering how to become eligible for Medicaid without spending all of your assets and losing all of your income.
