Pierro, Connor & Strauss, LLC assists seniors with chronic care health needs and individuals with disabilities to qualify and apply for Medicaid Benefits. Our Medicaid lawyers provide planning for people who want to protect and preserve their assets like their home and their retirement savings in order to get long-term care benefits in the home or nursing home — all without spending down to impoverishment.
Medicaid is a needs-based program that follows strict income and asset guidelines, and the levels for qualification change from year to year. We can meet with clients, explain the current rules and assist with the development of a plan which would enable the client or a loved one to apply for Medicaid benefits, either at home in the community or in a nursing home. Refer to our 2021 Medicaid Guide for detailed information.
Have You Considered the Potential Long-Term Care Needs for You or Your Spouse?
Research shows that 50% of all people over 65 require long-term care at some point. While most people prefer to stay in their home to receive care rather than enter a nursing home facility, the enormous cost of long-term care combined with the lack of adequate services available means that for many families, a nursing facility becomes the only option.
