Medicaid Planning for Elders in Iowa
A popular and effective means of covering long-term care expenses can be found in Medicaid. Not to be confused with Medicare, Medicaid is a joint federal-state government program that issues monetary benefits to cover qualifying healthcare expenses. The federal government provides the funding, while the state government sets rules about who is eligible.
Medicaid benefits can be used to cover qualifying long-term care costs, including assisted living facilities and nursing homes. Initially applying and continuing to qualify for this support requires navigating a complex bureaucracy of eligibility requirements and rules.
Our West Des Moines Medicaid planning attorneys have a complete knowledge of the rules involved with qualifying for Iowa’s program. We can assess your eligibility and identify tools and techniques to reorganize your income and asset holdings to gain Medicaid eligibility. Our team can also work with you to address stalled or rejected applications, including the filing and arguing of appeals.
