We focus on legal issues that affect our elderly clients such as estate planning, wills and trusts, nursing home eligibility, and more. As people age they may require the care of a nursing home but, often, they will not have sufficient information or time to plan or prepare for the expenses involved. Our goal is to assist you in preserving your accumulated assets to the maximum extent allowable by law while also preparing you for the future.
When it comes to nursing homes, MassHealth (or Medicaid) is the primary method of paying for nursing home care in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Unlike Medicare, MassHealth is not an entitlement program. Eligibility for benefits occurs only when the Commonwealth considers an applicant to be impoverished. Because of MassHealth’s regulations, the flexibility available to you in taking steps to preserve your assets diminishes the closer you get to needing nursing home care. While there are still steps that can be taken (even after a nursing home admission), the options become limited the longer you wait. When it comes to elder law, the rules are constantly changing. Let The Law Office of Arthur P. Skarmeas, LLC help you stay informed and prepared for every legal situation. Call (978) 887-0093 for a FREE consultation, today.
