How Can I Protect My Home from New York Medicaid and Nursing Home Bills?
Your primary residence has unique protections under Medicaid, but there are also traps for the unwary, such as New York Medicaid estate recovery. These protections are multiplied if a spouse or a child with special needs lives with you. Even if this is not the case, there are many ways our Nassau County and Suffolk County elder law attorneys will work on your behalf to save your home in the state of New York.
What Kind of Advance Planning Can I Do in New York?
Although many people come to us in crisis, the sooner they seek advice from an elder law attorney, the better off they will be. For example, the New York Medicaid eligibility rules keep getting tighter, and the laws favor those with time to plan. Also, for clients who are both healthy enough to purchase long-term care insurance and afford the premiums, this kind of insurance is an increasingly attractive option. We can advise you on long-term care insurance in New York, as well.
However, even in a crisis, it’s never too late to help a client, even after they’ve entered a nursing home. As New York elder law attorneys, we can help make sure your loved one enters a quality nursing home and implement a plan to pay the nursing home bills without losing all of your loved one’s assets.
