Houston Medicaid Planning Attorney

Medicaid Planning Lawyer

How can you qualify for Medicaid payment of nursing home care or other services? The rules change often, but our Medicaid planning lawyers are always aware of the latest Medicaid regulations. Talk to us about planning for Medicaid eligibility and how to avoid estate recovery.

The possibility of a nursing home and being unable to care for one's self may seem distant or even improbable. Unfortunately, you need to begin planning as soon as possible to restructure your income and assets to meet Medicaid requirements.

  • Currently, there is a five-year look-back period for Medicaid eligibility. That means you can be required to produce financial documentation for the five years prior to the date you apply.
  • Assets may be "spent down" or restructured to avoid affecting your Medicaid eligibility. For example, certain trusts can hold assets for special needs.
  • Our law firm helps you find other resources that can aid you in elder planning. Because of our focus on estate planning, we have a network of planning resources including geriatric case managers, financial planners, and accounting and tax specialists.

The sooner you begin to investigate potential strategies for protecting assets and planning for the future, the sooner you can have the peace of mind that comes with having a plan in place to deal with potential needs. Our lawyers can help you.

For Medicaid planning and Miller Trust services, we offer an initial consultation at a nominal fee and fixed fees for most services. We are ready to help you with estate planning, probate, estate administration, and guardianship matters to provide you peace of mind.
