Medicaid

Medicaid Planning Lawyer in Houston

One aspect of planning for the future is determining how you can both meet your needs and still maintain your eligibility for Medicaid and other government benefits. Medicaid is a federal program that provides medical care coverage for elderly individuals who are unable to pay for medical treatment on their own. Medicaid covers doctors' services, hospital care, medications, medical supplies and other necessary services once a person has been made eligible for the program.

At the Law Office of Jeffrey S. Wyman in Houston, Texas, I strive to provide my clients with information and guidance related to Medicaid planning, elder law and other aspects of estate planning. My practice is dedicated to helping clients understand their rights and options when dealing with Medicaid-related eligibility and planning.

Qualifying for Medicaid

Medicaid is an important resource for elders who need nursing home care. Good care in Texas can cost an average of $4,000 or more per month. In order to qualify for Medicaid benefits, applicants are limited as to the amount of assets they control and the monthly income they receive. Effective legal counsel regarding the rules that apply to these and other issues can make a significant difference in an elderly person's quality of life.

Whether you are planning for your own future, or you are handling the care of an aging loved one, good legal counsel is essential. The rules and regulations are complex and ever changing. A Medicaid planning attorney with thorough knowledge of elder law can save families tens of thousands of dollars and avoid incurring burdensome and unnecessary penalties.

Nursing home care can be extremely costly. Medicaid also pays for the expenses of long-term care in a nursing home or an adult care home. By having Medicaid coverage, the cost burden may be taken off of your shoulders, or those of your loved ones, allowing you to concentrate on your health and well-being.

I also provide comprehensive special needs planning for clients whose loved ones require special attention.

At the Law Office of Jeffrey S. Wyman, I represent individuals throughout the Houston metropolitan area, including Bellaire and Sugar Land; and in Fort Bend County, Harris County, Montgomery County and Brazoria County in Texas.
