Medicaid Crisis Services Offered
Medicaid is the national government program that helps to provide free or low cost access to medical services for millions of Americans. The Michigan Medicaid program covers roughly two million residents within the state, including families with children as well as older adults who fall within income guidelines. Medicaid can help to offset the costs of providing both in home and nursing home facility care, avoiding the need for you to deplete your hard earned savings and the assets you have accumulated, assets meant to benefit yourself and your children. If you are facing a medical emergency or fear your entire estate will be swallowed up by exorbitant medical costs, our firm may be able to help.
We offer the following types of Medicaid crisis services:
- Help for loved ones who require nursing home care. According to the U.S. Administration on Aging (AOA), nursing home costs can run as high as $7,000 or more each month. If you have a loved one whose physical or mental health has deteriorated beyond what can be cared for in the home, we may be able to help. By determining your eligibility for Medicaid benefits, we can help protect and preserve your assets, while assisting your loved one in getting the care they deserve.
- Help with in home care. Even if your loved one is able to remain in the home, the costs for providing care can quickly deplete your savings. The AOA estimates that home health care aides can cost up to $21 an hour, while the cost for a single day in an outpatient adult care facility can be as high as $70. According to the State of Michigan the cost of skilled nursing care is an average of $8,262. Many people are unaware that home health care is one of the many benefits available to Michigan residents through the Medicaid program, provided you meet the eligibility requirements. We can assist you in establishing revocable trusts that can shelter your assets, helping you to meet eligibility requirements while still enabling you to have access to the funds you need for day-to-day expenses.
