Medicaid Planning

Baton Rouge Medicaid Planning Lawyers

Helping Families Plan for the Future

A critical aspect of an estate plan that many people overlook is planning for Medicaid. Medicaid is a government program that provides health insurance benefits to over 72 million Americans. It is an important program that can help ensure you have the care you need as you get older. Planning for Medicaid can also help you avoid exhausting all your resources and assets on nursing home and healthcare costs. At Losavio & DeJean, LLC, The Louisiana Elder Law Firm, our experienced Medicaid attorneys in Baton Rouge can determine your eligibility and help you register with Medicaid.

Protect Your Home from Medicaid Estate Recovery

Do not lose your home to the State of Louisiana, because you had to stay in a nursing home before you passed away.

We can protect your home from estate recovery. We have developed innovative and creative strategies to protect the home from Louisiana Medicaid estate recovery.

Under U.S.C. 1396p(b) and La. R.S. 46:153.4, payments made for nursing facility services, Home Community Based Services, and related Hospital and prescription drug services must be recovered from the estate of an individual who was 55 years or older when services were received and paid for by Medicaid through the Louisiana Department of Health.
