A Comprehensive Strategy to Protect Your Assets

Very few adults are able to afford the high cost of longevity. As a result, most individuals rely on Medi-Cal benefits (Medi-Cal is California's version of Medicaid) to help cover the cost of medical treatments and prescription drugs. However, Medi-Cal will eventually demand compensation for the benefits. If you haven't planned well, the government could end up as the beneficiary of your estate.

In order to protect your estate from Medi-Cal reimbursement, we consider every aspect of your circumstances to determine the most appropriate time to apply for the program and which level of care you will need. In every case the goal is to protect the maximum possible amount of your assets while still ensuring that you receive the care you need.

Finding the Right Level of Care

California recognizes that different individuals need different levels of care. This can range from permanent nursing home care to a few hours of in-home assistance per week. Make sure you or your loved one has the appropriate level of care. If you only need in-home assistance, you shouldn't undergo the expense and loss of independence associated with nursing home care. If you need nursing home care, you shouldn't be left alone in your home.

When clients are assigned an inappropriate level of care by the government, we hire independent geriatric care management professionals to reassess the client and push to assign them the right level of care.
