Medicaid Planning Lawyer
Medicaid Planning Attorney Javier Centonzio, St. Petersburg & Largo, Florida
As we age, we must start considering the potential of the need for long-term care in a skilled nursing facility. Many seniors in Florida simply cannot afford nursing home care which on average costs more than $7500 per month. Most people depend on Medicaid to defray these costs, but the fact is that in order to use Medicaid, applicants must meet certain basic and financial eligibility criteria. This is why it is helpful to work with a Medicaid attorney early on to help protect your assets and plan for the future.
There are few things more frightening than realizing you or your spouse will need immediate care in a nursing home. In many cases, those who have not preplanned for the potential of needing Medicaid are uncertain if they qualify. We can help you with the Medicaid application process and at the same time help ensure that your assets are protected.
