Medicaid Applications In The State Of New York

NY Medicaid is a government funded program that allows individuals to receive governmental benefits to pay for the high cost of long term care in their own private homes or in an institutional nursing home setting so that private assets are not used for these high care costs. The reason NY Medicaid is important and why you want to plan for it is because the average cost of a nursing home in the New York City area is approximately $15,000/month and you are expected to pay for that care out of your own private assets if you don’t qualify for Medicaid. Medical insurance and Medicare do not pay these costs. You are expected to pay for this care out of your own private assets including your home if you did not plan properly to qualify for NY Medicaid.

NY Medicaid is a needs based program with certain eligibility requirements that requires proper legal understanding and planning in order to qualify and protect your private assets, income, and your home.

An Experienced Elder Law Attorney Is Best Suited For Securing Medicaid Benefits In New York

Be very suspicious and wary of offers by nursing homes or home health care agencies or others who will “prepare a Medicaid application” free of charge or at a reduced rate. These individuals are not elder law lawyers who are well versed and experienced in protecting and preserving your assets.

These non-lawyers can’t advise you or implement the appropriate legal NY Medicaid strategies and techniques to deal with prior gifts, transfer penalties or advise you on how to shield, transfer and/or protect such assets; because they can’t draft the appropriate trust documents, promissory notes, deed conveyances with Life Estates and other legal strategies and techniques and exemptions under the NY Medicaid laws as these are all the practice of law which is prohibited and illegal by non-lawyers who don’t have the know how or expertise to draft and implement these legal strategies which all go beyond just “preparing a Medicaid application”; because it is the practice of law.

Non-Attorneys Have No Regard For The Preservation Of Your Assets

These nursing home employees or agencies and other non-lawyers’ interest lie solely with getting themselves and their facility paid and not in protecting or preserving your assets. Many times, because they are not well versed in the practice of NY Medicaid law, because they are not NY elder law lawyers they will misinform you and give you the wrong advice, which will end up costing you hundreds of thousands of dollars and tell you that you have to private pay for your care and that you won’t qualify for Medicaid. Or you are not told or informed that you will be left with a tremendous lien and right of recovery against a spouse, the family home or the family’s estate at death for the cost of care after the fact which will end up costing your family hundreds of thousands of dollars.
