Protect Assets from Medicaid in Connecticut, CT

Senior citizens across the United States find themselves facing a catch 22 when it comes to qualifying for Medicaid coverage. For many, qualifying for Medicaid means selling the home they've known for years, or spending the assets they've worked so hard to maintain. In many cases, adult children are forced to sell the parental home, since Medicare benefits do not cover in-home, long-term care needs for their parents. An attorney experienced in asset protection and Medicaid in Connecticut can assist and advise the elderly in keeping their home and avoiding the depletion of their assets.

 Asset Protection and Medicaid in Connecticut

 Our attorneys can provide guidance to clients of all ages. Over years of practicing Medicaid planning law in Connecticut, we have learned the elderly are not the only ones that require ongoing professional health care. Many younger people who suffer from illness or disability face the same issues. Qualifying for Medicaid can make a significant difference in the quality of long-term care or home care an adult child with a lifelong condition or a spouse with early onset Alzheimer's disease will receive. By setting up a trust or transferring assets, you may be able to qualify for Medicaid coverage. An asset protection lawyer from our Connecticut office can advise clients on transferring assets between spouses, establishing a trust for special needs, and keeping the family home while still qualifying for Medicaid.

Receiving the care and treatment you need as you age doesn't have to automatically mean leaving your home and losing your assets. To learn more about we can help you handle asset protection and Medicaid in Connecticut, click here to contact the planning attorneys at Allaire Elder Law today.
