Experienced, Ethical Care Focused On Your Needs

Securing Your Future With Careful Medicaid Planning

If you are like millions of other Americans, you will eventually rely on Medicaid to help you afford the care you need later in life, especially if you will need nursing home care. While this is an invaluable program, it is not intuitive or easy to navigate on your own. Careful Medicaid planning now with the assistance of an attorney can help you make smart choices when confronted with a crisis. If you are already experiencing a crisis, a skilled attorney can help you use Medicaid planning to identify the options that best protect your finances and your loved ones.

This is what you can expect when you work with The Law Offices of Joel D. Muhlbaum. Our attorneys have extensive experience with Medicaid planning as well as an expansive understanding of Medicaid laws and the application process. We can advise you about which assets you need to protect and/or help you determine whether your income is such that you don’t need to give up assets.

A Comprehensive Practice Trusted By Professionals In Our Community

Our attorneys can help you with every aspect of Medicaid planning, including:

  • Completing your Medicaid application correctly and submitting the required supporting documents
  • Helping you transfer assets in a manner that is both legal and avoids penalties
  • Protecting your spouse’s financial independence and well-being
  • Teaching you about important Medicaid provisions like the spend-down process and the look-back period
  • Helping you determine the appropriate time to apply for benefits
  • Helping you with interstate Medicaid planning issues (if applicable)

We are proud of the positive feedback we receive from the clients we have helped. And we are equally proud of the referrals we receive from others in our community who trust the quality of our work and the depth of our knowledge. We regularly receive client referrals from other attorneys, accountants, hospital discharge planners, nursing home administrators and finance coordinators, financial planners, senior centers and others.
