Medicaid Planning and Benefits

Medicaid planning can protect hard earned assets if you or a spouse would need long-term care.

A lifetime of work to accumulate assets can be spent on long-term care.  If you are planning for the possibility of you or a love one spending time in a nursing home or long-term care facility, proper Medicaid planning can limit the amount of money you would need to spend on health care.  At ElderCare of RI we can help with Medicaid planning, determining the eligibility for Medicaid benefits, and determining if you meet income and asset eligibility tests in order to qualify for Medicaid

Medicaid is a state and federal entitlement program administered on the state level. Eligibility and the benefits vary among states. Medicaid coverage often exceeds even the benefits provided by Medicare. And, while the benefits are not the same for all states, the many medical costs paid by medicaid may include:

  • Hospital costs
  • Nursing home care
  • Doctor services
  • Home health care services
  • Physical therapy
