Medicaid is a joint federal and state program designed to provide medical care to those who can not otherwise afford it as well as providing long term care, including home healthcare, other in-home caring services, and nursing home care; to seniors who need it. Our Medicaid lawyers concentrate on obtaining Medicaid benefits to New York City (based in Brooklyn) and Long Island residents.
Medicaid has certain income and asset limits, which are discussed in this article on qualifying for Medicaid in New York. Even if your assets or income are above the allowances, an elder law attorney at our office can structure a plan to help you qualify.
A Medicaid attorney at The Law Offices of Roman Aminov can help you apply for Medicaid for home care, nursing home care, or doctor/hospital visits. The application process can be lengthy, confusing, and fraught with pitfalls. Allow us to guide you through the process in a professional and expedient manner.
There are two types of special needs trusts (“SNT”); a first party special needs trust and a third party special needs trust. A first party SNT is funded with the SSI or Medicaid recipients own funds, such as from a settlement, and is subject to a payback requirement. A third party SNT is set up by someone else for the benefit of the recipient. Both types of trusts allow the beneficiary to retain his government benefits while accessing the funds to help him live in dignity. Allow us to advise you on the proper use of special needs trusts to accomplish your goals.
