Medicaid Benefits

Medicaid benefits are available for qualified individuals who are in need of nursing home care or care within an assisted living facility. In order to qualify for these benefits, the applicant must be a United States citizen; medically needy; and meet the income and asset limits for the program.

Many people believe that they have too much money to qualify for Medicaid benefits, but in most cases this is not true. An Elder Law attorney can conduct a thorough analysis of your assets and income, propose a plan to restructure assets to qualify you for Medicaid while also preserving assets, and aid in processing the Medicaid application.

Guardianship

Guardianship proceedings allow a court to appoint a Guardian to assist an incapacitated person in matters of personal care and financial needs. Guardianship is most commonly needed when an incapacitated person becomes a danger to themselves, a danger to their own financial wellbeing, or they are being taken advantage of by someone who is entrusted with their care.

The attorneys of Boyette, Cummins & Nailos, PLLC can help you and your family navigate the guardianship process to ensure that your loved one’s health and financial security stay intact.

VA Benefits

The Aid and Attendance Pension is a VA benefit available to eligible Veterans or surviving spouses of Veterans. The VA considers several factors when determining eligibility, including active military service during a war period; discharge under conditions other than dishonorable; disability; and the Veteran’s income and assets.

This VA Pension can be used to help with basic costs of living, in-home healthcare, and the costs associated with assisted living facilities. It is important to consult with an Elder Law attorney before planning for VA pension eligibility because certain transactions may cause the Veteran or their spouse to become ineligible for Medicaid benefits that may be necessary in the future.
