Medicaid Planning

We help clients understand how to qualify for Medicaid Benefits in long term care nursing homes.  These benefits are not an entitlement, but are means tested.  The program’s rules are stringent; however Texas Medicaid allows for preservation of assets for the spouse at home.  Many Texans do not realize that they do not have to divorce or impoverish themselves in order for their spouse to be cared for in a nursing home on Medicaid if/when they can no longer provide the care their spouse needs in the home they share together.
