"Crisis" Medicaid Planning
"Crisis" Medicaid Planning is defined as when an individual is already in a skilled nursing facility or will be entering within a short time-period and needs to qualify for Medicaid benefits immediately. This event may also involve failing to qualify for Medicaid benefits because of either too much income or too many assets, or both.
In the case of a married couple, an applicant may be able to also increase the well spouse's Community Spouse Resource Allowance, or redirect some of the nursing home spouse's income away from nursing home costs, and back towards the well spouse, through the use of the Minimum Monthly Maintenance Income Allowance.
Many of the Medicaid Attorneys in our directory will also prepare the actual Medicaid Application for you to ensure that all of the crisis and pre-planning strategies are carried out to their maximum benefits.
