Turlock Medi-Cal Planning Lawyer
Affording months, let alone a year, of nursing home care without completely depleting an estate is something almost no family can afford. Long-term care insurance may offset costs, but Medicaid is often the more suitable option. In California, the program is called Medi-Cal.
Medi-Cal governs long-term care benefits for those parties eligible under federal and state Medicare guidelines. Through proper estate planning, it is possible to qualify for these benefits while protecting assets from future recovery. It is important to realize, however, that Medi-Cal covers long-term care in certain skilled facilities. As such, it is crucial to look at all issues if you or a loved one is considering in-home or other forms of assisted care.
We at the California law office of Ronald W. Hillberg have more than 30 years of estate planning experience. We will work directly with you and your loved ones to help you plan for these issues. If at all possible, we will do everything we can to help you qualify, looking at issues related to:

- DRA regulations
