Medicaid

The average cost of nursing home care in Florida is over $8,000.00 per month. We can help you take the legal steps necessary to arrange income and assets so that you or a loved one may be accepted into Florida’s Medicaid program to pay for nursing home costs.

We use a number of different techniques that are permitted by law, exist in specific carve outs, and by Florida policy guidance. These techniques include Qualified Income Trusts (QIT), Ladybird Deeds, and exchange or purchase of exempt and non-countable assets. In using these techniques your loved one can meet the Florida requirements of the asset and income test in order to qualify for Medicaid for nursing home care.

If you or a loved one are in need of nursing home care in the near future, we can still help you make the changes necessary to qualify for Medicaid’s asset and income test. We generally do not make the application to medicaid, but under federal law, you may use the person of your choice to assist with the application. If you don’t have someone who can complete the application, we can help you find someone.

If either you or a loved one are concerned about paying for nursing home costs, schedule a free 30-minute consultation with one of our attorneys today. The sooner that you are able to start planning, the more likely that either you or a loved one will be able to qualify for Medicaid when you need it.
