Burbank Medi-CAL Planning Attorney
Burbank Medi-CAL Planning Lawyer

“Failing to plan is planning to FAIL.” - Ben Franklin

Middle Class Families CAN Qualify for Medi-CAL (Medicaid) Benefits For Long Term Care
In Nursing Homes.

Do not listen to anyone other than
an Elder Law Attorney!

LA LAW Center is an Elder Law Firm that makes its business in always being up to date on the latest requirements and legal ways to move assets out of a Medi-CAL applicant's name and / or the well spouse’s name into a Medi-CAL Asset Protection Irrevocable Trust. These legal steps help our clients quickly qualify for Medi-CAL benefits for long term care nursing home care and protect their asset from Medi-CAL Estate Recovery upon death of person using Medi-CAL.

We have a 100% success record in getting our clients with assets quickly qualified for help with payments for skilled nursing home care!

In many cases, if combined gross income of the two spouses is under $3,022 a month the nursing home care will be free, as the well spouse will be allowed to keep both incomes! We can also petition the Los Angeles Superior Court to legally demand that Medi-Cal give all income to the well spouse to maintain current lifestyle.

Below is a chart that shows what assets allocations are allowed for an ill person in skilled nursing facility (applicant) and the spouse to qualify for Medi-CAL Long Term Care Benefits in a skilled nursing home.

Remember, our elder law team can help your family with possible legal strategies and asset transfers to qualify for the Medi-CAL long term care benefits without waiting and paying private pay for many months until your asset reach these levels.

We can help you save your money and the family home from Medi-CAL recovery!
