Medicaid Planning / Veterans Benefits Planning


A Range of Medicaid Planning Law(s) and Veteran Benefits planning

Let Pitt & Emison assist you with your Medicaid and VA planning needs. We help clients in finding the best options for their long term care needs while protecting their assets from long term care costs as much as possible. 

Regardless of what you have heard, you do not have to spend all of your assists if you are faced with a family member needing nursing home care. We also help clients get through the vast array of requirements to get Medicaid to pay for their nursing home care. 


Medicaid Preplanning

Medicaid PrePlanning, sometimes referred to as Proactive Planning, is a process where we help clients protect their assets from the costs of long-term care. We can help the elderly client better protect their assets, if the client plans in advance, preferably five years before they need to apply to Medicaid to pay for their nursing home costs.

Medicaid Crisis Planning

You often hear of cases where someone's parents lost everything to the nursing home and long-term care. What this means is that their parent did not have long-term care insurance and/or sufficient money to pay for their nursing home care. The parent applied for Medicaid, which will cover the costs of the nursing home care, once the elderly person "spends down" practically all of their assets. Helping these clients involves Medicaid Crisis Planning.

Clients can work with us and we can help to preserve as much of their assets as possible from the costs of nursing home care. Medicaid will not tell you how you can save your assets, but we do. Clients can work with us, and we can help to preserve as much of their assets as possible from the costs of nursing home care and long-term care.

 

Veterans Benefits Planning

Many veterans, and their spouses or widows, are eligible for veteran's pension or aid and attendance benefits from the Veterans Administration however, most aren't aware of these benefits. The process of obtaining these benefits is long and full of government paperwork. We help wartime veterans and their spouses get the benefits to which they are entitled. These benefits do not require a service-related injury to qualify.

By helping veterans structure how they own their assets, we can often get them and their spouses benefits that they would normally not be approved for through the VA. The VA will not tell them how to protect their assets, but we will.
