Medicaid Planning

Nursing home care is one of the most expensive things a person may have to pay for in his or her lifetime. Even a short stay in a nursing home can cost thousands of dollars, and it is not uncommon for end-of-life care to use up all of the money a person has saved over his or her lifetime.

If you want to protect your assets and your loved ones - if you want to have something left to give - it is critical that you speak with a knowledgeable attorney as soon as possible. Proper Medicaid planning is something that takes time. To be truly effective, it must be done before nursing home care is needed.

Smart Estate Planning For Long-Term Care

At The Law Office of Brian W. Hurd, in Merritt Island, I represent people throughout central Florida. My clients are people who are approaching retirement age and their families. Many are planning for eventual incapacity or for health problems and long-term care that commonly come with the aging process.

I use in-depth legal knowledge to help Florida families make the right decisions about Medicaid planning. I can answer your questions and help you protect your finances. My goal is to help you take advantage of the exemptions available to you under federal law. By taking advantage of these exemptions, you may be able to qualify for Medicaid and avoid unnecessary costs to you and your family. The law was structured as it is for a reason, and it is a smart decision to take advantage of the protections it provides.

A joint federal-state program, Medicaid provides medical assistance to low-income individuals, including those who are 65 or older, disabled or blind. Medicaid is the single largest payer of nursing home bills in America and serves as the option of last resort for people who have no other way to finance their long-term care.
