We Can Help You Qualify For MassHealth
MassHealth, which is the name for Medicaid in Massachusetts, is usually a necessary resource for anyone looking to enter a nursing home. It can essentially cover the full costs of your care while preventing the loss of your home or other assets in the process.
You must meet certain requirements to receive MassHealth benefits, but the good news is, the Center for Elder Law & Estate Planning can help you become eligible if you are not already.
- You must be a U.S. citizen.
- You must be a resident of Massachusetts.
- You must have less than $2,000 worth of assets.
Do not give up on MassHealth because of these requirements. Our attorneys can explain your options for meeting the qualifications.
You Do Not Have To Lose Everything To Afford Care
Thinking about your finances and your ability to get the care you need is scary. We tell all of our clients that they should not face such tough situations on their own. Our lawyers are not only sympathetic to what you are facing, but they are also very knowledgeable on the MassHealth program.
Often, we can place most assets into a trust, which would allow you and your family to keep ownership of them while preventing them from being counted in your MassHealth eligibility. This way, your countable assets are below $2,000 in worth, but you have not actually lost anything.
We Will Build A Plan Together
MassHealth is not always an easy program to navigate, especially if you do not currently meet the requirements. Luckily, our team has worked on these cases for years. Let’s plan together for the present and the future of your health care.
