Planning for The Cost of Long Term Care

 
Elderly Lady in nursing home — Medicaid in Santa Cruz, CA
 
What is Medi-Cal?
Medi-Cal
is California's state program for administering the application of federal Medicaid funds. If your loved one needs full-time care, either at home or in a long-term care facility, you should seek the professional help of Jeffrey T. Killeen - Attorney at Law. We can help you in preserving a loved one's assets so that the state doesn't recover the cost of long-term care provided.
Never Too Late!
Medi-Cal planning is often possible even after your elder has entered into a skilled nursing facility.
 
Medi-Cal Eligibility
While there are many variables and factors to consider, the basic requirements to become eligible for Medi-Cal are that an applicant have no more than a home, a car, and $2,000 of other resources in their name. There are transfer rules that can be used to remove many of the other resources, without causing Medi-Cal eligibility to be lost. Mr. Killeen has been using these rules for the benefit of his clients for over 20 years, so far without difficulty.
Medi-Cal estate recovery avoidance
After a Medi-Cal beneficiary's death, the state of California can demand reimbursement for all the benefits paid by the state. This can even include forcing the sale of a home to pay the claim. There are many exceptions to avoid this. Let the professionals at Jeffrey Killeen look at your case, and help you save your family's assets.
