Medicaid Application / Elder Law


Medicaid: who needs one?

Medicaid is funded and regulated by the state, administered by your county and is used to fund nursing care, nursing home came and other forms of long term care.

Unlike Medicare, Medicaid is resource based and is therefore available for young and old, provided that rigorous qualifications are met.

There are many different types of Medicaid programs available. Kaplan Law Practice focuses on institutional Medicaid available for elderly and disabled. While you do not need an attorney to apply for Medicaid, having an attorney working on your side may improve outcome. Kaplan law has experience and expertise in the area and charges mostly flat non-hourly fees for services in this area

Medicaid Planning

Medicaid planning focuses on ensuring that asset ownership will not prevent you from qualifying for benefits should those become needed.

If you are still relatively young and in good health, it is wise to explore medicaid planning before it is too late. If you are responsible for a disabled adult or child, Medicaid benefits may be your only choice.
