Crisis Planning is defined as planning for those who have an immediate or near immediate need for Medicaid eligibly. This stage is when the person is in the hospital, home or assisted living facility and is in the process of transitioning to the nursing facility. While Medicare part A coverage (daily therapy) in the nursing facility may be able to provide time to complete a plan, after therapy has stopped, the patient will be required to pay 8,000-12,000 a month private pay if he or she does not receive financial and legal guidance immediately. Even if someone has been paying privately for a period of time in a nursing facility it is not too late to protect the balance of the estate and qualify for Medicaid benefits quickly.

My father has been in a nursing facility paying privately for six months at a cost of over $10,000.00 a month, is it too late to protect the balance of his funds and qualify him for Medicaid benefits now?
No, it’s not too late. With asset restructuring and proper legal guidance Medicaid benefits could start as early as next month.
My mother is in the hospital and going to a skilled nursing facility for rehabilitation, can a representative from your company meet us at the hospital to discuss qualifying her for Medicaid benefits?
Yes. We meet clients at hospitals, nursing facilities and their residence. It is our goal to answer questions from all concerned family members and the Medicaid applicant, so everyone can fully understand the Medicaid application process.
