Asset Qualification Rules

The cost of long-term nursing home care has risen dramatically in recent decades—so much so that, if you're like most Americans, you're probably counting on Medicaid to cover the lion's share of the expense. That isn't far fetched, considering that Medicaid is the leading source of funding for long-term care. 

However, as a needs-based program, Medicaid has strict limitations on the assets you can have while still qualifying for benefits. If you've spent your entire life building a legacy for your family, it can feel like all your years of hard work are suddenly working against you. Fortunately, Medicaid planning can help, and Alatsas Law Firm is here to help you meet your goals.
