Upstate New York Medicaid Lawyers
Understanding The Medicaid Law Of 2005
The Medicaid program is designed to provide medical benefits to lower-income people who do not have health insurance or have limited health insurance. However, those with adequate assets may also qualify for these same medical benefits by undertaking proper Medicaid planning.
In recent years, the ability to qualify for Medicaid has become increasingly difficult with the passing of the 2005 Medicaid Law (also known as the Deficit Reduction Act ) and other similar laws. If you own certain assets and wish to qualify for Medicaid, it is therefore extremely important to retain the services of an experienced attorney who understands the recent changes to Medicaid and can effectively advise you of your options.
As long-term care costs rise, the government has closed the gaps in some of the asset protection methods used to qualify a person for Medicaid. Thus, asset transfers are now more difficult. With the help of an experienced Medicaid planning lawyer, however, most of your assets can still be protected, and your eligibility for Medicaid maintained.
The McMahon Law Firm, in Syracuse, New York, has been helping people understand and qualify for Medicaid benefits since 1992. We have helped hundreds of people protect their assets from nursing homes and the Medicaid program.
