Seniors in today’s world are living longer, which means that more seniors every year are requiring long-term care in nursing home facilities, and spending more years living in that environment.

Medicaid can help pay for nursing home expenses, but there are strict financial eligibility requirements and a complex application process involved. Attorney Michelle E. Murphy has over 20 years of experience guiding seniors and their families through this process and helping them find peace of mind!

Work With An Experienced Texas Medicaid Planning Lawyer Who Has The Resources & Knowledge Necessary To Simplify The Medicaid Planning Process.

There’s about a 70% chance that you will require long-term care at some point in your lifetime. In Texas, the average cost of a nursing home is around $80,000 annually. Medicare and other private health insurances do not cover nursing home costs, so most seniors turn to Medicaid – a needs-based, federal assistance program – to pay for it. They are often met with more than a few obstacles, though.

For one thing, because Medicaid is needs-based, there are limits on how much money you can make/have in order to qualify. This puts many seniors, especially middle class seniors, in a catch-22. Even if you don’t have enough to pay for long-term care, you may have too much to qualify for Medicaid assistance. Medicaid considers any gifts, donations, and transfers to a trust within 5 years of applying, so if you wait until you need nursing home care to plan, it will likely be too late. For another thing, applying for Medicaid can be time-consuming and frustrating; if you make mistakes in the application, you may jeopardize your eligibility or need to start over. You and your family should be enjoying these years of your life, not spending them stressed by financial burdens!

That’s where Attorney Michelle E. Murphy comes in. She can help you understand all of your options depending on where you are at in the process. She will do everything in her power to shield your assets from long-term care costs, including potentially moving assets out of your name into a trust so that you can qualify for Medicaid. You can rely on her to take the time to answer your questions and listen to your situation so she can give you reliable legal advice. She will handle the application and any subsequent appeals for you, and will advocate for you every step of the way! Call her law firm today to learn more and schedule a free consultation.
