All About Medicaid Planning in New York

Welcome to Morgan Legal Group P.C., your trusted source for in-depth information on Medicaid Planning in the state of New York. In this comprehensive guide, we will provide you with a thorough understanding of Medicaid, its role in covering long-term care costs, eligibility criteria, and strategies to protect your assets while ensuring you receive the necessary care.

Understanding Medicaid

Medicaid is a government program designed to provide healthcare coverage to individuals with limited income and resources. It plays a crucial role in helping seniors and low-income individuals access the medical care and services they need. Medicaid also includes provisions for long-term care coverage, making it an essential resource for those requiring extended care services.

Medicaid and Long-Term Care

Medicaid is a lifeline for seniors who require long-term care services, such as nursing home care, assisted living, and in-home care. Long-term care costs can be substantial and can quickly deplete a person’s savings and assets. Medicaid helps cover these costs, ensuring that seniors receive the necessary care without compromising their financial security.

Eligibility for Medicaid

Eligibility for Medicaid is based on various factors, including income, assets, age, and disability status. In New York, the guidelines for Medicaid eligibility can be complex, and it’s essential to understand the rules to ensure you meet the requirements. Our experienced Medicaid planning attorneys can help assess your eligibility and develop strategies to meet the criteria.

Medicaid Planning Strategies

Medicaid planning involves strategically organizing your assets and income to qualify for Medicaid benefits while preserving assets for your loved ones. Some common strategies include:

  • Asset Transfers: Transferring assets to family members or trusts within the Medicaid look-back period.
  • Medicaid Trusts: Establishing irrevocable trusts to protect assets from Medicaid eligibility calculations.
  • Spousal Protections: Ensuring the spouse of a Medicaid applicant can retain a certain amount of assets.
  • Income-Only Trusts: Redirecting income to a trust to qualify for Medicaid.
