Guidance Through Medicaid Home Care Benefit Issues

At Futterman, Lanza & Pasculli, LLP, we help families solve very real problems related to the home health care needs for aging loved ones.

The attorneys at our firm have devoted their careers to assisting clients faced with community Medicaid home care, nursing home placement and other elder law issues. Community home care typically involves professional nursing care during the waking daytime hours, but may include overnight services, as well.

Lawyers For Long-Term Care Issues

Our experienced attorneys understand the often complicated nature of public benefits eligibility. Through our representation, a client can secure a plan that leads to appropriate levels of home care or admission to preferred nursing home facilities.

We provide compassionate, creative legal options for long-term home care that consider the entire family's perspective. It is our goal to provide a legal approach that will unify families faced with tough decisions regarding the long-term care of loved ones.

Customized Plans As Unique As Your Family

A customized plan serves as a guide for each client and identifies steps designed to address present and future issues. Because no two families are alike, we tailor each case to meet the individual needs of our clients. This includes a thorough assessment of finances to determine eligibility for Medicaid, which is often used to pay for home health services for those who qualify.

It is not uncommon for clients to be concerned about eligibility for entitlement programs. Often, clients are surprised to learn that New York has no look-back period for recently transferred assets when determining eligibility for home care. Additionally, just prior to nursing home admission, gifting or asset preservation can still be accomplished.

It is not always easy for a client to address long-term issues involving a loved one. We understand and strive to make the legal process less difficult for our clients. Our boutique law firm provides the personal level of client services needed during troubled family times.

From our main offices in Smithtown and Bay Shore, as well as satellite offices in Valley Stream and Southampton, we provide legal counsel for Medicaid planning matters for clients in Nassau County, Suffolk County, Long Island and throughout the state of New York.
