Applying for Medicaid Benefits

Most people don't like to think of a time when they'll be unable to care for themselves and require assistance to complete daily tasks but, as science helps us live longer, the need for long-term care and support services is becoming a reality for more and more seniors. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, someone who's 65 today has a nearly 70-percent chance of needing some type of long-term care in their remaining years.

Sadly, if you haven't planned for the expense, long-term nursing care can threaten to devastate your family's assets. Though Medicaid is the leading source of funding for long-term care, as a needs-based program, qualifying requires careful advance planning. Fortunately, you've come to the right place. Alatsas Law Firm can help you prepare for your future and safeguard assets for your beneficiaries.
