Medicaid Long-Term Care Benefits and MERP Claims Defense

woman with elderly mother medium[1]If your loved one needs long-term care, the costs and the complexities of the law can be overwhelming. You can easily exhaust your life savings and risk the loss of your home.

If you’re not independently wealthy, then Medicaid benefits could be an alternative. But rather than simply “spending down” your savings to qualify for Medicaid, you could let us help you put in place planning that the law allows to preserve your assets and provide you with the most long-term care benefits.

But don’t apply for Medicaid without the right advice. Texas Medicaid is a confusing maze of rules and regulations. If you are not aware of all the traps and pitfalls, your application for Medicaid assistance could be rejected because of something which would have been easily avoided, costing you thousands unnecessarily.

At Nathan Ziegler & Associates, we can give you peace of mind by guiding you through the maze of Medicaid qualification, protect your hard-earned assets for your family and assist you in the nursing home planning process throughout West Texas.

MEDICAID ESTATE RECOVERY PROGRAM (MERP) CLAIMS DEFENSE

If your loved one has received care paid for by Texas Medicaid, and has now passed away, their estate may be subject to a claim by the Medicaid Estate Recovery Program (MERP). It’s unfortunate that some families end up losing the family home because of these claims. But we may be able to help. If your family has received a letter from MERP notifying you of their intent to file a claim against the estate of your loved one, give us a call right away! There may be strategies available within the rules that we can use on your behalf to fight the MERP claim and preserve assets for the family.
