Let Keyes Law Group, PC help you with your Medi-Cal (California’s version of the federal Medicaid program) planning. Our attorneys can help you plan for long-term medical care. The Medi-Cal planning process bears some similarity to general estate planning but requires a great deal of care and skill as Medi-Cal rules for eligibility and recovery are very strict.
A Medi-Cal plan can allow the Medi-Cal program to pay for certain health care and long-term care needs. Careful attention is needed to qualification and recovery, as these rules are very strict. We provide the MEDI-CAL benefits lawyer Santa Clara can trust.
WE PROVIDE THE MEDI-CAL BENEFITS LAWYER SANTA CLARA COUNTY CAN TRUST.
Medi-Cal’s long-term care program may pay for the cost of care in an approved skilled nursing home for a qualified Medi-Cal applicant. Not all nursing homes accept Medi-Cal benefits as payment. Medi-Cal also has programs which provide in home caregiving assistance and health care.
Strict eligibility rules limit the amount of assets a Medi-Cal recipient can own. These rules are changing, and many people may be eligible for Medi-Cal long term care and Medi-Cal health benefits in the future.
A recipient’s monthly income can limit the benefits available. Any income above a certain threshold is a ‘share of cost’, similar to an insurance co-pay. A Medi-Cal recipient must pay the monthly share of cost payment for health care before Medi-Cal will pay any benefits.
WE CAN HELP AVOID MEDI-CAL RECOVERY CLAIMS.
After you pass away, California may assert a recovery claim against your assets. Under this claim, California would seek repayment for the Medi-Cal benefits they provided during life. A recovery claim can be made in limited circumstances. It is essential to meet with an attorney who can help avoid such claims.
“Elijah was very helpful with editing our family trust after my wife passed away. He answered all my question in a timely manner and if he did not know the answer he found out quickly. He would take time out of day to reassure me that he had everything under control. He took his time to explain why he worded the trust the way he did and that I understood what it meant. Will use him again when the trust needs to updated.”
