Boca Raton Medicaid Attorneys

We Can Assist with All of Your Planning Needs

Medicaid is a government-funded health insurance coverage program for low-income people, including seniors and those with disabilities. This program can also cover nursing home care for individuals who qualify. For many elderly, Medicaid becomes their only option if they have no medical coverage or as their long-term care funding runs out.

Samuels Wood PLLC commonly represents clients who have tried to complete the Medicaid application on their own but find that it is more time-consuming and complicated than they initially thought. We have years of experience in this area of law, and we are familiar with the legal strategies our clients need to preserve our clients’ assets and save them time and money.

To learn more about applying for Medicaid and to see whether you or your loved one qualifies, please talk to our Boca Raton Medicaid attorneys at the Samuels Wood PLLC. We can walk you through the eligibility process, the benefits, and what your coverage entails.

Am I Eligible for Medicaid?

Our law firm has the extensive resources you need to make sure all of the required paperwork and supporting documentation for the Medicaid application are properly completed and filed. Your Medicaid application can be denied if you fail to meet certain income requirements, which why you should meet with our legal team to discuss what you can do to lower your countable income and/or assets.

Although Medicaid is typically granted to the elderly with little to no assets, Medicaid does allow some individuals with substantial assets to qualify if they transfer certain assets to exempt categories. It is important that you talk with a Boca Raton elder law lawyer about Medicaid eligibility and what you can do to meet the requirements.

  • You must be over 65 years of age, blind, or disabled
  • Demonstrate medical need
  • Have few or no assets
