A Medicaid crisis is a situation where an individual must enter a nursing home very soon, or is already living in one, and has been informed that he or she owns too many assets to qualify for Medicaid assistance. Given the cost of long-term care, this is indeed a financial crisis for virtually every family. As we have seen, most families exhaust their life savings within a year or two of a family member entering a nursing home.
What you must understand is that the laws governing Medicaid eligibility are extremely complicated and ever-changing. Information provided by family, friends, healthcare providers, social workers, and nursing home intake staff is quite often outdated or just plain wrong. Very few people, including most attorneys, fully understand Medicaid eligibility law. We do.

We can work with you to determine if you are indeed eligible for assistance from Medicaid and help you obtain it as quickly as possible. You are not alone during this difficult time.
