Paying for Health Care — Medicaid Eligibility

Medicare offers only limited health care benefits for elderly Americans in need of in-home nursing assistance or long-term medical care. However, in order to qualify for Medicaid and the long-term care benefits it provides, one must either be impoverished or spend down their assets. At W.R. Stewart & Associates, our elder law attorneys explore estate and health care planning options to help clients keep their homes and other assets while qualifying for Medicaid.

Through proper estate planning and asset re-allocation strategies, we help clients obtain medical benefits while retaining their financial independence. In circumstances where one spouse is ailing, we may be able to transfer assets to the healthy spouse in order to qualify their spouse for Medicaid benefits or institutionalized care. Every family's needs are unique, and we to tailor our approach to your family's goals.
