comes time to retire. But, you may not be as ready as you think. Many New York and Florida residents
don’t realize that long-term care is extremely expensive. Even a short stay in a nursing home can drain
your bank account. This means that many people must rely on Medicaid to help pay for nursing home

Medicaid while still passing as many assets along as possible to the next generation.
Creating Peace Of Mind
Our attorneys understand the importance of strategic Medicaid planning. Thoroughly examining your
options can help you feel secure about what the future holds and create peace of mind. When you hire
our firm, we will assist you in crafting an individualized road map for you and your family, should you
ever need long-term care assistance.
We use our substantial understanding of Medicaid guidelines and procedures to identify solutions to
problems seniors face when applying for aid. We can help you address a variety of complex Medicaid-
related issues, including:
Navigating the look-back period — Everyone enrolling in Medicaid must go through what is
known as the look-back period, in which the government examines the past five years of your
fiscal activity. Any gifts or donations made within those five years will incur a penalty.
Short- and long-term planning — Because of several factors, it’s best to create your Medicaid
plan sooner rather than later. However, if you need immediate assistance, we will act swiftly to
file the necessary paperwork and develop a strategy to resolve pressing concerns. In some
cases, we can create an emergency plan to help minimize the cost and penalties you must pay.
Tailoring detailed plans that address your needs — Our firm works in a wide range of legal
areas, including estate planning. This means we can develop an all-inclusive plan that takes your
wishes into account.
The cost of health care continues to rise and so does the necessity of planning ahead. Our firm can help
you create a plan that fits with your goals and gives you peace of mind knowing you are prepared for
any unexpected challenges down the road.
