With Americans living longer than ever before, nearly half of all women and one-quarter of all men will likely live in a nursing home or long-term care facility at some point in life. Considering the high cost of such care and the fact that Medicare will not pay for it, the unfortunate reality is that the majority of men and women go broke within the first year of entering a nursing home. Fortunately, there are ways to avoid this scenario.

At the Florida law firm of Amy B. Van Fossen, P.A., our Melbourne, Florida, Medicaid planning attorney can make sure you get the care you need without losing all of your life savings. One way we can help you accomplish this is through what is known as non-crisis Medicaid planning.

If you are healthy now but want to ensure that you have a plan in place to protect your assets if you do become incapacitated, this may be the route for you. Life estates, annuities, promissory notes, and trusts are just some of the tools we can put to work on your behalf. It is important to remember that the sooner you contact our Melbourne Medicaid planning attorney, the more options we have to assist you.

Let Us Help You Deal with A Crisis

If a loved one was recently admitted to a nursing home after an unexpected medical crisis or hospitalization, you may have been told that he or she has too many assets and is, therefore, not eligible for Medicaid assistance.

However, our lawyer’s job is to understand the complex laws surrounding Medicaid eligibility. We may be able to help you qualify for this financial assistance and protect your assets even if social workers, nursing home staff, and others say it cannot be done.
