The Law Office of Natalie J. Miller can assist you, your attorney-in-fact, or other loved ones, to help protect and preserve your assets so those assets can be used to sustain and improve your quality of life. Whether you are pre-planning for care or in a long-term care crisis, we can assist you and your family in obtaining assistance, if needed, to finance the needed level of care. This includes assistance from the following programs:
We will put you in touch with the workers at the Veteran's Administration to determine if you are eligible for any veteran's benefits that may be available to assist in paying for your long-term care costs.
We will work with you to determine if you qualify for assistance with assisted living or rest home care through the Special Assistance program. This program has a restrictive income cap and covers various forms of assisted living centers, including those known as Memory Care Units or Alzheimer's programs. There are ways to protect certain types of income that may exceed the cap to gain eligibility. Finally, we will assist you in gaining eligibility and applying for benefits, once you meet the tests for Special Assistance qualification.
Medicaid (also known as Skilled Nursing Benefits):
We will work with you to determine if you qualify for assistance with nursing home care through the Medicaid program. The income cap for Medicaid benefits is more generous than the Special Assistance income limit, but many people have more resources than are allowable under the Medicaid regulations. In full accordance with Medicaid rules, we will help you with strategies to gain eligibility, which will protect and preserve as much of your assets as possible to sustain and improve your quality of life in the future. If you are seeking assistance to pay for care through government programs like the Veteran's Administration, Special Assistance, or Medicaid, our attorneys can help guide you through the confusing rules and regulations to obtain the results you desire.
