Planning for long-term care is a critical aspect of estate planning that often requires careful consideration and expert guidance. In Massachusetts, Medicaid, also known as MassHealth, plays a pivotal role in providing various benefits for individuals in need of long-term care, whether at home or in a nursing facility. Unfortunately, there is a considerable amount of misinformation surrounding MassHealth eligibility criteria, income and asset limitations, and the overall application process. At Falco & Associates, P.C., we understand the complexities of Medicaid and are here to guide you through the process, ensuring that your unique needs and financial circumstances are taken into account.

Understanding MassHealth

MassHealth is a lifeline for many Massachusetts residents, offering assistance for individuals in need of long-term care services. This can include everything from nursing home care to in-home assistance, such as personal care attendants or home health aides. To navigate the intricacies of MassHealth successfully, it’s crucial to have a knowledgeable team by your side. Falco & Associates, P.C. is your partner in creating a tailored plan that addresses your specific needs and financial situation.

At Falco & Associates, P.C., we take a collaborative approach to ensure that you receive the best possible guidance throughout your long-term care journey. Our team comprises Elder Law Attorneys, Benefits Coordinators, and Case Managers who bring extensive experience in handling Medicaid/MassHealth matters. We work closely with you and your family to create a comprehensive plan that aligns with your unique circumstances.

Determining Eligibility

One of the initial steps in the process is determining your eligibility for MassHealth benefits. This involves assessing your income, assets, and other qualifications. Many individuals are often concerned about meeting income and asset limitations and may face uncertainty about the so-called “spend down” process. Rest assured, our team is well-versed in MassHealth eligibility requirements and will provide you with clear and accurate information.

Submitting a MassHealth application can be a complex task, but you don’t have to go through it alone. Falco & Associates, P.C. manages every step of the application process, ensuring that all necessary documentation is completed accurately and submitted on time. We understand that this can be a time-sensitive matter, and our team is committed to streamlining the process for you.
