Do you know what Medicaid is?

In North Carolina, long-term care Medicaid is tailored to seniors needing support with daily tasks like bathing, dressing, and eating.

Medicaid alleviates the financial burden of exorbitant services, such as in-home care, assisted living, or nursing home care.

It is a vital support system for countless families, ensuring their loved ones access necessary care without depleting their lifelong savings.

If you meet the eligibility criteria, Medicaid benefits can assist in covering the costs of:

Meeting the requirements for Medicaid benefits involves navigating a complex and bureaucratic procedure that demands careful planning.

The Forest Law Group’s primary focus is to help you access the care you need while safeguarding your home, assets, and lifelong savings in the event of a disability or health decline as you age.

Getting a Medicaid approval is difficult.

There’s no clear path, and the rules twist and turn.

It’s like trying to put together a giant jigsaw without the picture on the box. You might get a few pieces right, but you’d be guessing a lot. And one wrong guess could cost you.

Make a mistake with your Medicaid form? You could get a big bill – maybe $8,100 a month or even more – for nursing home care.

If your loved one is in a nursing home, you know every minute counts. You need the full picture, not just pieces.

That’s where we come in.

We’re here to help make the puzzle easier, save you time, and keep your loved one safe. Talk to us, and let’s solve this together.

Misconceptions about Medicaid

There are a lot of misconceptions about Medicaid, and most of them aren’t true.

Here are a few common ones:

"I'll lose everything to get on Medicaid"

Wrong! Don't fall for this. You don't have to give up everything. You can keep things and still get the care you need.

Many of our clients come from middle-class backgrounds. They want Medicaid to safeguard what they've saved. We've helped them. We can help you, too.

"I'll just give my stuff to my kids, then I’ll qualify"

Nope! Medicaid looks back five years to see if you gave things away.

Gave away big items, like your home? They might say "no" to your benefits for a while. But with our guidance, we can work through this together.

"I have a house, so I can’t qualify for Medicaid"

Not true! In many places, if someone is still living in your home, it doesn't stop you from getting Medicaid.

But, there's a program where Medicaid might try to sell your home later to get their money back. We can help plan to stop this from happening.

"I've got Medicare, so I’m set"

Not the same thing! People often get these mixed up. Medicare is mainly for those over 65 and for a short time. It won't cover long nursing home stays.

Medicaid helps more people and does cover long-term stays.

Are long-term care costs worrying you or someone close?

Your estate plan must think about possible long-term care needs later on. Plus, there are steps you can take today to keep things safe for tomorrow.

Or is someone you care about already in a nursing home and needs support immediately? Don’t worry, it’s not too late. We’re here for you.
