We Can Help You Qualify for Medicaid
Unlike Medicare, which is an insurance program, Medicaid is an assistance program. Administered by state and local governments under federal guidelines, Medicaid provides tax dollars to assist older and disabled individuals as well as low-income people of every age with their medical bills. Medicaid is a complicated web of laws, rules, and regulations that can be nearly impossible to navigate on your own. In Georgia, there are 17 different Medicaid programs and several Medicaid Waiver programs, each with their own requirements. While Medicaid has stringent requirements for eligibility, those rules have a plethora of exceptions. Individuals facing long-term nursing home stays may use exceptions in the law to receive government assistance without forfeiting their homes, their community property, or other estate assets. At Pollan Elder & Disability law, we are experts in the ins and outs of Medicaid policy and can help clients throughout Georgia utilize legal exceptions to qualify for Medicaid benefits while preserving their assets.
The protections our plans can offer include:
- Retaining ownership of your home
- Legally transferring property without incurring transfer penalties
- Protecting your spouse’s financial security
- Getting your nursing home to accept Medicaid rates
- Preserving assets for inheritance
