Income Qualification Rules

With the average annual cost of long-term nursing care reaching six figures, staying in a nursing home can quickly exhaust your family's assets, leaving nothing for your beneficiaries after your death. Unless you're extremely wealthy and can cover long-term care expenses on your own, you're likely counting on Medicaid to help pick up the tab. That's not surprising, as the program is the most common source of funding for nursing home care. However, as a needs-based program, Medicaid has strict income eligibility rules that can make qualifying for long-term nursing care benefits tricky. Fortunately, Alatsas Law Firm is here to help.
