Boston MassHealth Attorneys

Massachusetts Medicaid Application Lawyers

The high cost of nursing home care can quickly wipe out a person's lifesavings. MassHealth/Medicaid can pay for nursing home care, but it is means tested, and there are strict rules regarding the transfer of assets for the purpose of qualifying for MassHealth/Medicaid. In the midst of a crisis, where can you turn for help and guidance?

At Gosselin Law, we deal with these types of problems every day. We are crisis managers who take charge when things start spinning out of control. Our firm helps people apply for and qualify for MassHealth/Medicaid. We protect the homes and lifesavings of people going into nursing home facilities. We even provide assistance with nursing home placement.

We look at ourselves as providing an island of hope and source of assistance for people dealing with the sudden incapacity of a parent. Gosselin Law wants to help you and your loved one in your time of crisis. Contact us today for a consultation with one of our Boston MassHealth lawyers.

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.
