What Do You Mean by Asset Protection?
Asset protection becomes a crucial issue when you have been admitted to, or need to be admitted to, a long-term care facility. With the costs of long-term care skyrocketing, often topping $5,000 to $10,000 per month, you might suddenly learn that because of the assets you have built over the years, you are ineligible for Medicaid benefits that would pay for nursing home or other types of long-term care. This means that your only ability to pay for long-term care is from your life savings, your home, and your other assets that you have accrued over time. Your most urgent question is likely to be how you can possibly afford long-term care and still retain some or all of your assets.
In this situation, you need the services of an experienced Medicaid planning lawyer who knows how to protect your assets and ensure that you can still afford the long-term care that you need. With so much incorrect information out there, you need to know what legal strategies exist that can help solve your problems during this difficult time in your family’s life.
