Massachusetts Medicaid Application Lawyers

The high cost of nursing home care can quickly wipe out a person’s lifesavings.

Many of our clients live out of state and can only be in Massachusetts for a limited time. We can handle the many details associated with going into a nursing home, while you focus on helping your mother or father.

Paying for Nursing Home Care

MassHealth/Medicaid applies a five-year look back period for the transfer of assets. That means that the government can take any assets that have been transferred out a person’s name in order to pay for Medicaid-funded nursing home care.

Many exceptions exist however, and with careful planning and attention to details, it is possible to qualify for MassHealth/Medicaid while preserving assets. Gosselin Law has many tools and resources that can enable you to protect your home and assets. We can also complete the complex paperwork involved in a MassHealth/Medicaid application.

At Gosselin Law, our attorneys and staff are compassionate and caring. We understand the difficult position you are in — and we will work hard to achieve the best possible solution for you and your loved one.
