MEDICAID AND SPECIAL NEEDS PLANNING IN GEORGIA

Atlanta and all of Georgia Attorneys Medicaid
and Special Needs Government Benefits Planning

Protecting the income and assets of Georgia senior citizens and younger disabled communities who may need long-term care services through Georgia Medicaid waiver programs or nursing home placement.
 
A lifetime of prudent financial decisions can be destroyed with just a few years of the expense of nursing home care. If you anticipate that you or your spouse might need nursing home or other type of long-term care, begin preparing your long-term care planning today. Even if you have substantial assets, effective Medicaid planning can limit the amount of money otherwise spent on long-term care needs, preserving assets for your spouse or family.

The Pollan Law Firm, an Elder and Special Needs Law Firm based in Atlanta and serving all of Georgia. Our attorneys have years of experience in all aspects of eldercare and special needs law, allowing us to effectively handle your Medicaid planning concerns. Contact us today to schedule a confidential consultation.

The importance of early planning. To determine Medicaid eligibility, the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 now requires the State of Georgia to review your financial matters for the five year period prior to the date of a Medicaid application. The sooner you begin preparing your financial affairs for a government benefits application, the sooner benefits can begin to meet the costs associated with long-term care. Appropriate use of types of irrevocable Medicaid and special needs trusts, revocable trusts, income or Miller-type trusts, testamentary trusts, annuities, gifting of assets, or a reverse mortgage can help minimize the expense of long-term care, allowing you to protect assets for non-Medicaid covered services and needs for quality of life.

We can advise you throughout the process, helping you prepare for Medicaid as part of our comprehensive elder and special needs planning services. Whether you need to begin creating a spend-down plan, wish to transfer assets to a trust, or need more unique arrangements, we can represent you from pre-planning, preparing and filing the Medicaid and Veterans Aid & Attendance application, to representing you on any Medicaid appeals.

Ensuring financial security for your family members. The recent changes to Georgia Medicaid eligibility for elders and younger disabled don't adequately address the needs or concerns of a family. With nursing home care costing $5,000 to $8000 per month, if a spouse enters a nursing home facility, the spouse who continues to live at home could quickly become impoverished, subsisting on Social Security retirement or pension so nursing home expenses are paid. To avoid this, prepare with effective Medicaid planning. For more information about individual, spousal, and dependent family member allowances, see the current Georgia Income and Assets Long-Term Care Medicaid Eligibility Criteria.
