Medicaid Planning

Medicaid Planning is an important service to provide for seniors. Medicaid is the only government program that will pay for nursing home care on a long term basis. With the rising cost of long term care, many seniors may not afford to pay privately for their care. As a result, Medicaid planning may be necessary for many seniors.

While it is a complex area, we have a proven system for training attorneys in this area and helping them get up to speed quickly. If you're ready to jump in and start providing this valuable service to seniors and their families, we are ready to help!

    Dealing with Changed Circumstances in Irrevocable Trusts: Decanting, Trust Protectors (audio)

    By: Louis Pierro, Esq. and Matthew McClintock, J.D.

    Have you ever had a client come into your office with a trust plan that they would pay big bucks to get out of? Many lawyers simply shrug and say, "There's nothing you can do". Getting out of a bad situation is never easy, but you can be the attorney with the answers who can command those large fees. Over 20 states have decanting statutes, and use of this technique has risen dramatically in recent years. Attorneys who represent clients with "bad" trusts should be aware of the remedies, which will be explored.

    Topics Covered:
    • Un-needed IRT's
    • Drafting/Strategic Strategies
    • Decanting and Trust Protectors

    What Happens When the Plan you Prepared Takes an Unexpected Turn (streaming)

    By: Melissa Wick, JD, and Teresa Nuccio, JD

    Elder Law Masters Course Session

    You prepare the most secure MAPT you and the client could possibly draft – independent trustee, trustworthy lifetime beneficiaries… a lawyer’s dream. Just months later, the grantor is in serious car accident with head trauma and will need 24 hour care the rest of his life. With assets “tied up” in the MAPT what can be done?

    In another case, you prepared a gifting plan with a promissory note that was signed by all parties. Then you learn the client failed to tell you about prior gifts, or an asset they didn’t think counted. These are just a few of the unexpected scenarios that will be explored with solutions offered during this session.
