Medicaid Planning in Nassau, Suffolk, & Long Island, New York
Medicaid offers health care coverage to those who qualify based on an evaluation of the applicant’s assets, income, and medical needs. 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 spending down all of your assets, but also access the benefits sooner than if you had not consulted with an attorney.
Protecting Your Assets While Applying for and Receiving Medicaid
An experienced New York Medicaid lawyer can explain asset protection strategies that can be employed prior to making a Medicaid application. The planning options vary depending on the particular situation of the applicant. Often the options include making transfers of assets or gifts of some sort, spousal refusal, spend downs, and promissory notes. The techniques employed for each applicant are different depending upon the circumstances that need to be considered prior to applying for Medicaid. The Medicaid rules are very complex and a discussion with an experienced Elder Law Attorney is crucial because if transfers are made incorrectly penalty periods which could have been shortened or eliminated may be imposed.
