Are you or a loved one faced with the possibility of being admitted to a nursing home? Do you have questions regarding admission? Discharge? Payment?
Let Corriveau Law take the burden of dealing with the legal hassles so that you can tend to you family’s needs.
1. Medicare vs Medicaid
Medicare only covers care in nursing homes for a brief period, and with proof of improvement following an illness or accident.
Once Medicare coverage is exhausted, one will either have to pay the nursing home directly, or, if qualified, make an application for Medicaid.
To prevent the risk of not qualifying, we encourage the development of a plan which may prevent your assets from being considered, and help qualify you for government assistance.
2. MedicAID Application
Corriveau Law can prepare your MedicAID application to insure the quickest time for approval.
What about the spouse who still lives at home? While Medicaid may require contributions from a spouse based on their assets, they may not consider the family home, car, and personal property.
3. Crisis Care Planning
If you or a spouse have suffered a recent injury and find yourself in a nursing home, we may be able to save your hard earned assets from the cost of care with the proper plan.
4. Pre-Crisis Planning
Starting today, you can begin protecting your assets from nursing homes and ensure eligibility for Medicaid, if needed.
