New York Medicaid Planning Lawyer

Take Initiative – Plan for the Future

With the continually rising cost of nursing home and assisted living care, planning for the future is all the more important for our elderly community. Medicaid planning is a key service that the legal team at Melnik Law Group, PLLC provides to clients in Manhattan, Brooklyn and throughout New York City. Attorney Melnik at our elder law offices can talk to you about eligibility for Medicaid and what steps you can take to plan for your or a loved one's long term care.

An elderly person will not be automatically entitled to receive Medicaid. This is a government program that an applicant must qualify for based upon an income and asset test. There are steps that a lawyer can take to help you qualify and to help you protect your assets. This may be accomplished in various ways depending on your particular goals and financial situation. For example, if you have excess income and are receiving Medicaid, we may be able to help you join the pooled income trust to avoid having all excess income mandatorily paid toward your medical care. We may be able to talk to you about setting up a Medicaid asset protection trust if you have assets that need protection from the costs of long term nursing home care.
