We want to help you with many planning needs, from writing a will, to working on your advance directive. But sometimes it’s best to take a step back and think about some of the aspects of your life that you normally push to the back of your mind. Did you know that Medicaid planning is also an important aspect to consider when you are thinking about your future? Today we will look at its importance and what services we offer you as a Medicaid lawyer.
Why Medicaid Planning is Important
You want to include Medicaid in your future plans. The rules of Medicaid can not only protect you in the long run, but also those that you love the most in your family. Medicaid rules offer you opportunities to preserve your own assets, as well as those for your spouse, children, and grandchildren. You want to preserve as many assets as possible, which is where we come in and fight for those rights. Medicaid is used widely across Alabama. With about 5 million people present in Alabama at this time, almost 1 million of those people are on Medicaid. Medicaid is an essential part of maternity care, covering a wide variety of services, and a useful tool for elders who rely on the system. Medicaid eligibility is usually reserved for those who are considered to be living under the federal poverty line, so you want to act quickly and preserve your benefits with the help of an attorney because you can’t afford to lose out on these many benefits.
You may have heard myths over the years about what Medicaid requires from you. Many people who are elderly believe that, to qualify for Medicaid, they have to give up what they own. However, this is far from the truth. The Medicaid agency will take a look at what you own between you and your spouse and make a decision, which is why it is helpful to have an experienced attorney on your side who knows what to say and what to look for.
No matter what needs you have, if you are elderly and considering Medicaid protection, or making your first will, we have the services to offer to you. Make sure you’re prepared for the future.
