Medicaid is a federal and state program, and the rules vary in each state. If you reside in Indiana and need Medicaid, state-specific laws apply. You can benefit greatly from an expert Medicaid planning attorney who understands the qualification and application process for approval.
To qualify, you must be:
- Over the age of 64; or
- Blind or disabled; or
- A caretaker of a child, parent, or spouse in your household who is blind or disabled.
As we get older, needs change. Seniors face complex legal concerns that are different from when they were younger. As aging family members experience health challenges, it is essential to consult an attorney who works in elder law and understands long-term care planning and Indiana Medicaid planning.
It is vital for estate planning to consider disability, long-term care, Medicaid eligibility, and protecting assets from Central Indiana and Indianapolis nursing home costs. Our Indiana elder law attorneys can help re-title assets or spend down assets on your own. Medicaid has complex laws that change regularly. Attempting to qualify for Medicaid without guidance may delay qualification and do more harm than good. At the Law Office of Matthew Allen, we also consider the need for durable powers of attorney and guardianship or conservatorship to make financial and health care decisions if you become incapacitated.
Without the assistance of Medicaid coverage in Indiana, your family will be held financially responsible for the monthly care costs directly or have their inheritance spent down to cover the high costs of elderly care over time. We make sure you qualify for Medicaid as quickly as possible by creating efficient and effective crisis plans when you are already facing a severe health crisis and need long-term care in Indianapolis and the many surrounding towns, including Carmel, Greenfield, Lafayette, Anderson, and more.
