How to Protect Your Estate from Nursing Home Costs?
If you or your spouse enters a nursing home, the cost of the nursing home may wipe out your life's savings. With proper planning you may be eligible for Medi-Cal (California's version of Medicaid). If you or your spouse qualifies for this public benefit, Medi-Cal will pay for the high cost of nursing home care. Currently, nursing home fees average between four to six thousand dollars per month.

If you do not meet the eligibility requirements, there are certain planning strategies that our office can assist you with in order to qualify for Medi-Cal. Planning strategies include but are not limited to: permissible spending of money, converting non-exempt assets to exempt assets, repairing or improving exempt assets, paying off debts, court order, etc.

In order to qualify for Medi-Cal you will need to go through an involved application process. Please call us 818-887-3333  and for free we will assess your situation. We can do the complicated application, and proceed to get you qualified for Medi-cal benefits while protecting your home and savings.
