Medicaid & Long-Term Care Planning

The Law Office of Tyler R. Barrett, P.L.L.C.

If you or someone you love needs help paying for health care, Medicaid can help. However, qualifying for Medicaid is confusing, stressful, and expensive. State regulations mandate that individuals must spend down their assets before they can qualify for Medicaid, which can leave you without the safety net you planned on passing to your children. A Medicaid attorney can walk you through the steps you need to take to qualify for Medicaid, and advise you on ways to protect your assets to the full extent of the law.

How a Norman Medicaid & Long-Term Care Planning Lawyer Can Help

When you or someone you love is facing care in a rehabilitation center, nursing home, or assisted-living facility, you stand to face enormous out-of-pocket costs. While long-term care insurance can help you pay for the care you or a loved one needs, it is still new and often expensive in and of itself. Medicaid can help pay the bills and lower your out-of-pocket costs. However, in order to get Medicaid assistance, you need to qualify for it by spending down your own assets. Many people mistakenly believe that they need to spend down most or all of their money just to get needed care.

An experienced long-term care planning lawyer can discuss your specific needs, help you plan ahead so that you can protect the largest share of your assets, and assist with all aspects of qualifying for Medicaid. Medicaid rules, paperwork, and regulations are highly confusing so it is best to have a dedicated attorney on your side who can guide you through the process of applying. Without assistance from an attorney, you risk performing an action that makes you ineligible for Medicaid.

Take control over your future by planning for your long term care needs. To learn more about Medicaid and long-term care planning, or to schedule a free new client consultation, contact Attorney Tyler Barrett at (405) 928-4075.
