Rhode Island and Massachusetts Medicaid Planning Attorneys

The time arises in nearly every family to place a loved one in a long-term care facility. Unfortunately, however necessary a nursing home may be, many are deterred due to the substantial cost. At Lahti, Lahti & O'Neill, P.C.,we help clients implement future planning for nursing home care needs so that substantial assets are not diminished paying nursing home bills. For proactive assistance planning for Medicare or Medicaid eligibility, contact our Rhode Island and Massachusetts law firm to speak with an experienced and local lawyer.

Effective Rhode Island and Massachusetts Medicare and Medicaid Planning

Medicare and Medicaid provide coverage of medical expenses and nursing home care costs for eligible individuals. Although a home or business property may not be counted in Medicare and Medicaid asset qualifications, other real estate, vehicles, jewelry, and other assets may be included. Therefore, we assist clients in effective Medicaid eligibility planning, such as:

  • Avoid Liens: Evaluating if planning is necessary to avoid potential Medicaid probate liens if an individual has been utilizing certain public programs
  • Enable Eligibility: Creating irrevocable trusts at least five years prior to nursing home care needs to protect assets while enabling program eligibility
  • Utilize Gifting Exemptions: Evaluating if gifting, living trusts, or other techniques are necessary to pass inheritance to family members during one's life (to protect assets, enable eligibility, and minimize estate taxes )

Proactive and Individualized Medicaid Planning Assistance

No two families are the same. Therefore, we carefully evaluate our clients' unique circumstances and goals and then guide clients through the process of creating an individualized plan that meets their specific needs. With the help of a Certified Elder Law Attorney, you can be sure that your family and your interests are properly cared for. Contact our Providence, Rhode Island law firm to schedule a consultation with a skilled local Medicaid planning lawyer.
