Elder Law & Medicaid Planning

“Get government benefits while preserving your assets and income. We will qualify you for Medicaid programs that pay for your long-term care. Do not spend your life-savings on nursing home costs!”

Shoham Segal, Esq.

With U.S. nursing home costs exceeding $9,000 per month, too many Americans are forced to spend away their hard-earned life savings just to provide for necessary long-term care. 
Medicare is, at best, only a short-term fix, and even the most loving family has its limitations.

Fortunately, LVNV Legal can help you get the care you need and protect your assets at the same time.

What is Medicaid Planning?

We help our elderly clients qualify for government benefits that pay the cost of nursing home and in-home care, while at the same time protecting and preserving our clients’ and their families assets and income.

Time is of the essence when it comes to Medicaid Planning. Crisis planning is necessary when you need immediate care to protect your health and safety at or outside the home. Basically, it’s when you need nursing home or in-home care services. In “crisis mode,” you may already be in a nursing home and may already be paying care costs out of pocket. In these situations, delays in seeking counsel could result in losses of thousands of dollars. So don’t delay!

Candidates for crisis Medicaid planning may include those who:

  • need long-term care in a nursing facility;
  • rely on family or professional caregivers in-home;
  • must take immediate action to pay for care without bankrupting themselves or their family.


Whether you are already in a nursing home, planning to go into a nursing home, or just want to be prepared; let us help you protect your personal assets from having to pay costly nursing home fees or other long-term care expenses.

Do not let all of your hard-earned life’s work to go to the coffers of a nursing home. Leave your assets as a legacy to your loved ones. 

Instead, let us help you obtain Medicaid benefits so that you can ensure you receive the care you need, while saving your assets and income for yourself and your loved ones.
