Using MassHealth or Medicaid
Medicaid is distinct from Medicare, which you may already be receiving. At most, Medicare will cover a few months’ rent at a nursing home or assisted living facility. After those months, you are expected to cover the rest of the costs out of pocket. These costs stack up quickly, but, fortunately, this is where Medicaid, or MassHealth, step in.
Massachusetts Medicaid, MassHealth, provides financial assistance to lower income families in Dover and the rest of the state to make long-term care affordable. The name MassHealth is synonymous with Medicaid and serves the same purpose: to assist with long-term care costs.
You, as many others often do, may fall in the middle of the spectrum where you don’t yet qualify for Medicaid, but the normal rent, which can surpass $10,000 a month, is out of your budget. Our attorneys are experienced in helping people in this exact situation redistribute their assets to their chosen beneficiaries in ways that protect their wealth and precious assets while becoming eligible for the assistance they need. Allow us to do the same for you so that you can get the care you deserve without the debt you don’t.
If you’re struggling to budget for long-term care facilities, contact Marsden Law P.C. for help becoming eligible for government assistance.
