Medicaid Planning in Nassau, Suffolk, & Long Island, New York
Medicaid offers health care coverage to those who qualify based on income, asset retention, and disability status. Applying to Medicaid in New York is an arduous, time-sensitive process, and eligibility is largely determined on a case-by-case basis. With Medicaid planning guidance from an experienced New York Medicaid attorney, you may be able to not only qualify for benefits without sacrificing your assets but also gain access to these benefits quicker than if an attorney was not used.
Protecting Your Assets While Applying for and Receiving Medicaid
An experienced New York Medicaid lawyer can walk you through asset protection practices during the Medicaid application process. Options often include deed transfers, spousal refusal of medical bills, and gifts or promissory notes. Discussing Medicaid application strategy with an experienced Medicaid attorney is crucial before employing these planning options considering that when haphazardly applied, they could result in penalties or asset recovery from the Department of Social Services.
