LONG-TERM CARE MEDICAID PLANNING

Medicaid planning is the practice of preserving assets and ensuring qualification for as much assistance as possible. Many people believe that only “low income” individuals can qualify for Medicaid so they spend all of their savings on long-term care before applying. Others believe that the best way to qualify is to “spend down” by giving away large sums of money and/or property to their loved ones. Planning does not need to involve “spending down” or “hiding assets”.

Elder Law of Omaha can advise you on the best way to spend down assets to legally preserve eligibility for benefits for you or your loved one. Our attorneys and public benefits planners have years of experience and have established relationships with all agencies that are involved in the Medicaid process.

AN EXPERIENCED MEDICAID PLANNING ATTORNEY CAN:​

  • Advise you on the best ways to preserve your assets during the qualification process

  • Ensure that all transfers of assets follow all guidelines and laws in Nebraska and Iowa

  • Prepare and submit your Medicaid application and communicate with them on your behalf throughout the entire application and approval process

QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR ELDER LAW ATTORNEY:

  • How many applications does your firm submit per year?
  • How long has your firm been providing Medicaid Planning?
  • What is your approval rate for submitted Medicaid applications?
  • What kind of experience do you and your staff have with Medicaid planning?
  • Are estate planning documents included?
  • About how much will it cost me?
  • How much of the process do you handle?
  • How long does it take for my Medicaid application to be submitted?
  • How much work will I have to do to insure my Medicaid application is submitted?
  • Will I have any contact with DHHS/DHS?
  • Do you work to preserve my assets? How can I prevent having to “spend down”?

With more Medicaid application submissions per year than any other firm in both Nebraska and Southwest Iowa, Elder Law of Omaha offers the most experienced Elder Law Attorneys in the state. We are dedicated to providing the most comprehensive Elder Law service in Nebraska, with people on staff who have previously worked for the Nebraska Medicaid Agency (DHHS).

When choosing an Elder Law attorney, knowing the right questions to ask is an important part of that decision. The questions listed above are a good start, and any attorney should be able to answer them.
