What Is Medicaid?


Medicaid, more specifically, the Medical Assistance for patients in a nursing home, is an entitlement program funded by the state and federal government for people who can prove meet certain asset and income standards.

At an average cost of more than $10,000 per month, most families quickly run out of money. We help you get the help you are entitled to while protecting the maximum amount of your family’s hard-earned savings permitted by law.

Medicaid eligibility is based on financial need. To apply for Medicaid, you must prove that your assets and income don't exceed limits set by the government. Our team knows how to apply for Medicaid so you can get the financial assistance you need for long-term care.
