Using a holistic and often proprietary approach, our firm uses a vast knowledge, understanding, and deep respect of the elderly to help our elderly clients obtain the highest quality care at the lowest possible cost, which typically involves protecting assets in order to become eligible to have Medicaid and/or Veterans Aid and Attendance benefits pay for the appropriate level of care — be it home health care, assisted living care, or nursing home care.

Unfortunately, Medicaid eligibility rules are the most complex and confusing maze of legal rules in existence. The United States Supreme Court called the Medicaid laws “an aggravated assault on the English language, resistant to attempts to understand it.” Schweiker v. Gray Panthers, 453 U.S. 34, 43 (1981), and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit (just below the U.S. Supreme Court), in a case arising out of Virginia, called the Medicaid Act one of the “most completely impenetrable texts within human experience” and “dense reading of the most tortuous kind.” Rehab. Association of Virginia v. Kozlowski, 42 F.3d 1444, 1450 (4th Cir. 1994). Veterans Aid & Attendance rules are likewise also exceedingly complicated and often treacherous to navigate.

Let the experienced estate planning attorneys and elder care lawyers at the Farr Law Firm provide you with expert and specialized asset protection planning and in-depth representation in connection with Medicaid and Veterans Aid & Attendance benefits, so you don’t wind up possibly spending your entire life savings on long-term care, unnecessarily jeopardizing your future care and well-being, as well as the financial security of your family.
