If you are thinking about Medicaid, you should speak to an attorney who specializes in that area of law as soon as possible. There is really no time to waste—all you are wasting is money and adding stress. The sooner you get going on this, the sooner you may be eligible for Medicaid.
There is no time to waste in cases of Medicaid Crisis Planning. When we hear the word “crisis,” we think of disasters or calamities of epic proportions, which is where many find themselves when they (or a family member) try to stay above water financially when dealing with the outrageous costs of senior care—especially when care facilities are involved. Accordingly, “crisis planning” in this context is planning for those who have an imminent need for Medicaid eligibility. To receive Medicaid, a patient and the patient’s spouse (if married) must first “spend down” their “countable” assets. In such times of crisis, navigating the application process and protecting your assets are our primary concerns.
