Medicaid Planning (MassHealth Planning)
Medicaid (MassHealth) planning is the process of protecting assets and obtaining Medicaid (MassHealth) benefits in the event of a costly long term nursing home stay or for care and services provided at the home. As a way to avoid spending a lifetime of savings in a few short months of private care for a loved one, it is imperative for families to explore the option of helping their loved one apply for Medicaid (MassHealth) benefits. What many people are unaware of is that despite one’s financial status, whether it be lower or upper income, there are many strategies that can be employed to help a loved one receive Medicaid (MassHealth) benefits.
Preemptive Medicaid (MassHealth) planning is the best scenario when the senior is healthy, as more options are likely to be available.
