Elder Law & Medicaid Planning
Medicaid can be an important resource for elders needing skilled nursing care. Proper skilled nursing care in Georgia can cost $4,000.00 or more per month. In order to qualify for Medicaid benefits, applicants are limited as to the amount of assets they own and the monthly income they receive. Many families present with ideas of gifting assets; Medicaid has specific and complicated rules regarding the gifting of assets. Effective legal counsel regarding the rules that apply to these issues can make a significant difference in an elder's quality of life.
I provide practical solutions to families caring for elders, including:
- Medicaid eligibility
- Financial concerns
- Asset protection
An effective Medicaid planning attorney can save families tens of thousands of dollars and avoid incurring burdensome and unnecessary penalties.
