Private Agencies Purporting To Prepare A “Medicaid Application” Should Be Avoided

Be very suspicious and wary of advice and offers by NY nursing homes or NY home health care agencies or other non-lawyers who will prepare a “Medicaid application” free of charge or at a reduced rate. These non-lawyers are not well versed and experienced in protecting and preserving your assets or income. Furthermore, as non-lawyers, they can’t practice law and can’t give advice and draft trusts in order to shield assets or income or draft deeds and convey real property, or draft promissory notes or implement other legal Medicaid strategies and techniques to deal with prior gifts, penalty periods and exemptions under the Medicaid laws which all go beyond just “preparing a Medicaid application” because these techniques are the practice of law which is illegal if performed by non-lawyers.

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. These non-lawyers, or agencies or nursing homes are not interested in and do not know how to protect your private assets, home or your estate.

NY Elder law and NY Medicaid law has many nuances and intricacies that only an experienced and well versed NY elder law lawyer will know how to handle. In addition, as lawyers we have a duty of loyalty to look out for your best interests and to protect your assets and to advocate for you only. Obligations and requirements that nursing homes, agencies and other non-lawyers don’t have to you.

These legal NY Medicaid planning techniques, documents and strategies are very important in order to protect your assets and income not only when an individual is attempting to secure Medicaid benefits in their private home, but also and more importantly how to protect and preserve these assets in the event a person needs nursing home care in the future.

NY Medicaid Asset Protection Plan Is Used To Protect And Preserve Family Assets

Did you know that the average cost of a nursing home in the NYC metro area is approximately $15,000, a month and that you are expected to pay for that care out of your own private assets including your home, unless you properly plan to have Medicaid pay for it.

Therefore, a comprehensive NY Medicaid asset protection plan needs to be put into place to protect and preserve family assets so they are not spent on nursing home care so that they can be passed on and distributed to the estate and not to the nursing home. Therefore, a well-developed Medicaid and NY estate plan is needed and not just an application for in home Medicaid.

The New York elder law attorneys at The Law Offices of Michael Camporeale have been drafting New York estate and Medicaid plans in order to protect and preserve assets and income for clients from the high catastrophic cost of care for the elderly for well over a decade in the New York City metro areas of Westchester, White Plains, Long Island, Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx and Staten Island.

The Law Offices of Michael Camporeale has been helping many people qualify for in home Medicaid services in their own private homes and institutional NY nursing home care for well over a decade.

Many times these people came to me thinking that they would never qualify for Medicaid services because of assets and excess income only to be happily surprised that we can get them the benefits and have the benefits paid by the Medicaid program preserving and protecting their assets and income, as their own private funds would not be needed to pay for their long term care costs.
