Medicaid is the primary source of assistance for those needing to cover long-term care.

Getting approved for Medicaid can be challenging and often requires a lot of time. Many people find their applications turned down on their first try, and every moment counts when you’re in need of nursing home care.

So, why is securing Medicaid coverage so difficult?

It boils down to its rigorous screening process. Typically, applications are denied for two reasons:

You own too much

This could be money, property, cars, etc.

You've given too much away

Like signing over a house to your children or giving cash gifts to your grandchildren.

This is where de Jesus Law Group enters the picture.

We’ll guide you in creating plans to manage the significant expenses of long-term care while also safeguarding your assets. 

This includes:

Delaying is not an option when long-term or nursing home care is needed.

At de Jesus Law Group, we want to ensure you get the care you need without losing your house, belongings or savings.

What would you do?

Imagine this scenario…

Your mom, always the rock of the family, starts having serious health issues.

She’s becoming forgetful and easily confused. After a serious fall, it’s obvious she needs more care than you can provide. Her doctor suggests it’s time for professional help, like a nursing home.

Now, you’re stuck wondering about the costs. How expensive is a nursing home, and how will you afford it?

You learn that Medicare, the health insurance for people over 65, doesn’t cover long-term care costs, and you may need to determine how Medicaid works.

Don’t stress; you’re not alone in this.

At de Jesus Law Group, we’re here to navigate these challenges with you.

We’ll work out a legal plan, collaborate with your mom’s healthcare team, and make sure the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration approves her Medicaid application.

Let us simplify this process for you and your family. We’re dedicated to helping you secure the care your loved one needs and deserves.

No matter where you are in this process, we’re ready to guide you every step of the way.

Qualifying for Medicaid is difficult.

Getting approved for Medicaid can feel like a maze. Without a clear guide and with complex rules, it’s tough to get it right on your first try.

It’s similar to trying to complete a home renovation on your own. Often, DIY efforts end up costing more time and money than hiring a professional from the start.

A single mistake on your Medicaid application could mean facing long-term care bills of $9,000 – or more – each month.

If you or someone you love needs nursing home care, acting swiftly is crucial. You may already understand that navigating this journey by yourself isn’t the best option.

At de Jesus Law Group, we’re here to save you from the headache, time loss, and financial burden of navigating Medicaid by yourself. Reach out to us today to find out how we can help.

The advantages of early long-term care planning

Beginning your long-term care planning well in advance – before you or a family member requires it – provides key benefits in securing your loved ones’ future and protecting your assets.

Here’s what pre-planning can do for you:

Shield your home

Early long-term care planning can prevent your home from being claimed by Medicaid Estate Recovery, keeping it within the family.

Support for your spouse

Early long-term care planning ensures that the healthier partner can continue living comfortably in their own home.

Protect your family's legacy

Early long-term care planning secures your children's inheritance, sheltering it from being consumed by nursing home expenses.

Ensure your care

With early long-term care planning, we aim for your application to be accepted on the first attempt, speeding up access to the care you need.
