Medicaid, or MassHealth as it is known in Massachusetts is a form of welfare that pays for long-term care when your other resources are depleted. Early and proper planning are the first steps to ensure that you are protected from losing everything to a nursing home.
Nursing home care can cost over $10,000 per month. Long-term care insurance can be too expensive for most people. Consequently, a person needing nursing home care must apply for MassHealth to help pay for it.
Even when a loved one is in a nursing home, there is still some planning that can be done. The rules for qualifying for MassHealth are complex and ever-changing. No one should navigate the MassHealth maze alone. You need an experienced elder law attorney.
