Elder Law and Medi-Cal (Medicaid) Planning

Elder law in California covers a wide range of issues including Medi-Cal planning, asset protection, VA benefits, incapacity planning, planning for long-term care needs, and traditional estate planning.

With life expectancies at all-time highs, more and more people in the Bay Area will require some form of long-term care in the future, ranging from in-home assistance to long-term nursing home stays.

Unfortunately, Medicare and Private Health Insurance do not cover these costs—which are typically in excess of $9,000 a month. It’s no wonder many families run out of money within the first year when faced with a prolonged nursing home stay.

There’s no greater frustration or heartbreak for a senior than to watch their entire life savings (and the inheritance they worked so hard to leave to their family) get eaten up by long-term care expenses. 

Fortunately, there are a number of options to protect your assets (or those of your loved ones) while preserving your independence and the level of care you need.

Brainin Law Office can help you qualify for Medi-Cal Benefits  to cover these ongoing expenses. Using trusts and asset protection strategies afforded by the state of California, your loved one may be able to enjoy government benefits without “spending down” all of their assets or losing everything they own.

Planning can also be done to avoid a health care crisis in the future. Our Bay Area attorneys can help you design a solid estate and incapacity plan that guarantees facing your golden years without worry or financial struggle. This may include:

  • Disability planning
  • Long-term care insurance
  • Estate planning
  • Asset protection

We are here to assist you with all of your long-term care planning needs. For more information or immediate assistance, please call our office at (650) 422-3313 and ask to schedule a Medi-Cal Planning Session.
