We are here for all of your estate & elder law needs. Unlike Medicare, which is considered an entitlement program, Medicaid is a needs based program. An applicant for Medicaid benefits must meet certain income and resource requirements, as well as be certified by the Department of Social and Health Services as requiring a certain level of care. If these criteria are met, Medicaid will help pay for a portion of a person's long term care costs, whether it be in a nursing home, assisted living facility, adult family home, or in-home care.
