MEDICAID PLANNING LONG ISLAND, NY


Health Care can end up exhausting a family or individuals of their assets, but it doesn't have to be that way. Sometimes people feel that the Medicaid Program is only for the indigent and not them. The Medicaid Program is for all elderly and the disabled of any age to assist with paying medical costs.

The purpose of Medicaid Planning is to preserve assets and establish or maintain eligibility for Medicaid.

Metro Eldercare Agency II, LTD understands the complexities of the Medicaid Program requirements and how to assist you in becoming eligible. Almost everyone can become eligible for community home care; nursing home is a bit more complicated, but even then assets can be preserved at the last minute.

If you are worried about how you are going to support yourself and your spouse because of escalating medical expenses and costs of care, contact the experienced Medicaid planning services of Metro Eldercare Agency II, LTD.

Metro Eldercare Agency II, LTD was founded in 1995 as a way to meet the needs of families when Medicaid planning becomes a necessity and reasonable fees a must. Insurance and Estate Planning were added to assure total solutions to clients needs.

Servicing clients throughout Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester and New York City.

“Large enough to help you navigate the system, but small enough to provide the caring service.”

As we continue to navigate this challenging time, I wanted to make sure you are aware of some troubling changes that New York State is making for Community Medicaid applications for Home Care and ALP (Assisted Living Program).

The New York State Legislature has decided to pass a law that greatly impacts our Seniors and will make getting assistance for the elderly much more costly for them.

Effective October 1, 2020 a 30-month look back will be imposed for all community based, long term care service applications.

This means that any gifts or transfers made during the look back period will be assigned a penalty period and the applicant will NOT immediately be eligible for Medicaid assistance. As you all know, previously, there was NO look back on home care.

In addition, applicants will no longer be able to transfer assets to their heirs and be eligible for Community Home Care Medicaid the month after the gifting. Personal Care services will also be evaluated with much more restrictive guidelines as of October 1st.

This new law WILL AFFECT millions of you, your loved ones, and friends.

What You Can Do Now:
If your loved one needs assistance now, or it is possible that they will need assistance in the next 30 months, and you have been holding off on applying for Medicaid, RIGHT NOW is the time to act.

If you know of anyone this could affect, please forward them this email and have them call us.

You can always reach my office with any questions or to initiate an application. Again, applicants need to be eligible NOW so that a Medicaid application can be submitted before the new law takes effect. Please stay safe during this pandemic. We wish you well, and pledge to continue to keep you informed.

    My friend Jenny went back to her family in Florida, after staying with me for 8 months, until the Medicaid came. There have been so many twists and turns during this four year journey with Mom. I could never have done it without Metro Elder Care Agency. You, Joy, Elaine and the phone staff have all been so kind, patient and understanding. You have encouraged me at times when I was so overwhelmed I didn't know which way to turn. Thank you and I look forward to continuing to utilize your services. I want to be ready for Medicaid renewal time next year. Please don't forget me. I know I have to submit payment for future services, is there a deadline?

    Rarely in the business do you meet people who are honest, professional, do business by a code of ethics and most importantly reliable. I can honestly say that Elaine is who you should call if your family needs help.
