Medicaid Planning in Pennsylvania

When you or a loved one enter a nursing home, it can be one of the hardest experiences of your life. There’s often the fear that the assets you’ve worked so hard for might be lost, but the truth is, with proper Medicaid planning, it’s possible to get the skilled nursing care you or your loved one needs at a cost that’s reasonable.

Medicaid is often necessary for long-term care because Medicare is generally only used for injuries or short-term illnesses. For long-term care, you’ll need Medicaid.

How Medicaid Planning Works

You’ll meet with a Medicaid planning attorney with years of experience helping clients just like you. You’ll provide information on your income and your assets so that your attorney can identify the problems that you might face. They will have to do some calculations to find what Medicaid option is going to be best for you or your loved one.

You may need to fill out some forms or retrieve some documents for your attorney, but once all the information has been collected, your attorney will submit your application to the County Assistance Office (CAO). Though you may have to go through an appeal process, once approved, we’ll help you with the next steps.
