The Need for Long-Term Care Planning

The high cost of a nursing home or assisted living facility can cause many individuals and families to deplete all of their resources rapidly. It is critically important to have a St. Louis elder law attorney to plan for and address covering the costs of long-term care, whether you’re concerned about yourself or planning for elderly parents.

Medicaid Planning

Medicaid, a combined federal and state program, is one option to help pay for long-term care. Eligibility requirements vary by state. To qualify for Medicaid, your countable assets and monthly income must fall below a minimum standard. Proper Medicaid planning can help an individual qualify and also provide for a spouse and preserve assets for beneficiaries. Each state has its own Medicaid requirements, and our St. Louis elder law lawyer works with you and your family to determine the best strategy to qualify in Missouri. Reach out to us with your questions regarding long-term care expenses, Medicaid for aging parents or persons with disabilities, and elder law in St. Louis. Planning for peace of mind – that’s what we do.
