Medicaid Assistance

Medicaid Planning NY

The government can look back five years to determine if you qualify for Medicaid assistance. Medicaid planning can no longer be done at the time benefits are sought. Senior citizens and parents of special needs children must plan for Medicaid or risk losing substantial assets or a significant part of their estate.

Medicaid planning is a part of comprehensive estate planning that allows you to preserve your wealth and assets for your family and heirs. It is important while planning for Medicaid that your elder care lawyer utilize the right tools. For example, some trusts can be viewed as part of your wealth and prohibit you from receiving Medicaid assistance. Likewise, if the wrong type of trust is created for a special needs child or mentally incapacitated child, it can affect the child’s eligibility for Medicaid assistance.
