In an effort to protect the health of our clients, employees, and communities from potential impacts of COVID-19, we are holding virtual meetings (via telephone) as an alternative to traditional face-to-face meetings. The quarantine does not need to stop you from getting the legal help you need and we are available to help entirely virtually! Feel free to reach out for a Free Virtual Consultation.

In order to express our gratitude and appreciation to all of the healthcare workers and first responders helping our communities, we want to extend a discount to each of them and their families on any estate planning services to help them protect and care for their own loved ones.

Over 90 Years of Combined Experience Credentials, Compassion and Commitment Make Us the Clear Choice

Troy Medicaid Planning Attorneys

We Can Help You Obtain the Benefits You Need

Though Medicaid is a program designed to make healthcare more accessible to families who would not be able to afford it otherwise, applying for the program can be complex. The application involves a lot of work and the review process can take a long time— time that many people cannot afford. Barron, Rosenberg, Mayoras & Mayoras’s estate planning and elder law attorneys serving in Troy, Oakland County, and surrounding areas offer Medicaid planning services are focused on making sure you or your loved one can be properly cared for.

Call (248) 494-4577 if you or a loved one need help with Medicaid benefits.

Confirming Your Eligibility for Medicaid

Medicaid was created for low-income families. While the program is meant to help people, the government’s fear of fraud has resulted in an outrageous qualifications process that requires applicants to go through a lot of work to prove they are an eligible candidate. If your total assets are estimated over $12,500 or, if married, $25,000 then the application process is going to be more complex. If your income is over the eligibility requirements for Medicaid, there are several legal strategies you can use to receive the benefits anyway.

Some strategies for qualifying for Medicaid include:

  • Setting up an irrevocable trust that will reduce the applicant’s countable assets and protect them for future use.
  • Transferring money to a spouse when the applying spouse needs to move into a nursing home.
  • Setting up a Qualified Income Trust that can be used to pay medical bills and will be forfeited to the government after the applicant’s passing.
  • Establishing an annuity that will provide a healthy spouse receives monthly payments from an insurance company while the applicant spouse receives nursing home care under Medicaid.
  • Spending excess assets by paying off debts, making home renovations, and other large spending investments that can be passed on to beneficiaries in a will or trust.

Why Hire a Medicaid Planner?

Even if you do not automatically qualify for Medicaid, there are several ways to reach the limit so that you or your loved one can receive the benefits you need. It is in your best interests to work with an experienced Medicaid planner who can make the most out of your current assets and help you legally qualify for Medicaid.
