Figuring out how to pay for your long-term care expenses is no easy job. That includes valuable funding sources like Medicaid. But determining Medicaid eligibility can be complicated and stressful for anyone. At Hook Law Center, our attorneys and financial experts offer years of experience doing just that. We’ll work together to help determine if you’re eligible to receive help from Medicaid, and minimize your long-term care expenses.
Medicaid, which is separate from Medicare, is a joint federal and state public assistance program. Depending on your income and assets, Medicaid may cover the cost of your long-term care.
If you’re eligible for Medicaid, it can be a big help toward covering several long-term care expenses:
- Nursing home care – Provided in a licensed facility that offers general nursing care for people who have a chronic illness or cannot take care of their own daily living needs.
- Community-based care – Designed to help people live in their homes independently, these services include adult day programs, meal delivery, and transportation services.
- Personal care – Getting help with bathing, dressing, eating and using the bathroom.
Medicaid’s qualifying and eligibility rules can be quite extensive. Hook Law Center’s experienced attorneys will guide you through the application process and find out if you qualify.
