Many people don’t realize that…
⚠️ A private or semi-private room in a Pennsylvania nursing home can cost as much as $10,000 annually!
⚠️ The majority of today’s 65 year-olds have about a 70% chance of needing some type of long-term care support in their remaining lifetime!
⚠️ Medicare does not cover the costs of long-term care, and most private health insurance plans don’t either!
While you might have worked hard to save money for living and traveling during your retirement years, you may not have factored in the largest potential expense that can arise, which is that of long-term care. As the seniors of today live longer than ever before, their living in a care facility becomes less of a possibility, and more of a probability. That’s why the vast majority of older individuals are realizing they must plan ahead to get financial assistance via Medicaid. However, this process is extremely complex!
Working with our skilled Catasauqua Medicaid planning lawyer is the best path you can take to ensure that every step is handled correctly and your assets are protected. Our lead attorney, Joshua N. Daly, has 15 years of experience and is dedicated to providing personalized small-firm attention to all clients. Call today to schedule your free initial consultation and learn more about how we can simplify the Medicaid planning process!
Why Do I Have To “Plan” To Qualify For Medicaid?
Medicaid is a federal government health assistance program that helps millions of Americans – not just seniors – get quality healthcare that they may not have been able to afford otherwise. These funds do cover a significant portion of long-term care costs, though, which is why it can be especially beneficial to seniors. There are strict eligibility requirements, and anyone who applies must not exceed the income or asset limit (which is established by each individual state).
The government covers their bases and conducts extensive research into your financial history before determining if you fall below the asset limit. Therefore you cannot simply gift your life savings to your children or spend it down to change your financial situation. In fact, all of your major money transactions from the last 5 years will be uncovered! This 5-year-look-back is why it is crucial to begin planning to qualify for Medicaid as soon as possible.
So how does one hold on to their assets while making sure they qualify? There are a few different tools, and our Catasauqua Medicaid planning lawyer can help you choose the right one based on your individual circumstances! Some possibilities may be creating a trust, converting countable assets to exempt assets, transferring assets, and more.

*We highly recommend Joshua Daly for Elder Law, wills, etc. This is something that people don’t know what can happen when your parents pass away or what to do. Josh helps prevent as much as you legally can the home and assets being taken by elder care home and/or govt.
What a great experience on a subject people don’t like to talk about but is so important. Josh makes this process pleasant. We are recommending Josh to all our friend and family and friends. Everyone should get their ducks in a row. I am glad we met Josh & finally did this!
Thank you Josh
