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.
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.
