Long-term nursing costs have risen dramatically in recent years. Unless you're exceptionally wealthy (and don't mind spending your money on nursing home expenses), you're probably one of the millions of Americans who are counting on Medicaid to help them cover the cost of their long-term nursing care.
If you've done the necessary financial planning to qualify for Medicaid benefits, you may be ready to sit back, relax, and breathe a big sigh of relief. Not so fast. Though you may have sufficiently protected your family's assets from Medicaid during your lifetime, they can become subject to estate recovery after your death. Fortunately, we can help.
