Over 10 Years Helping Indiana Families Create Medicaid Plans
At Jewell Law Office, LLC, I understand the stress and frustration that often comes with Medicaid planning. I can assist you in preserving your assets and qualifying for Medicaid with as little stress as possible.
I am attorney Kimberly A. Jewell. For more than 10 years, I have helped clients in Greenwood and elsewhere throughout Indiana with all aspects of elder law, including Medicaid planning.
Which Type Of Medicaid Planning Is Right For Me?
There are two broad categories when it comes to Medicaid planning:
- Advanced planning: Creating a plan months or years beforehand is advanced planning. This is wise if you have Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis (MS) or another degenerative condition. I help determine how best to arrange your finances over the next five years to preserve assets, plan for long-term care and also assist you in qualifying for Medicaid.
- Emergency planning: If the time comes that you require nursing home or assisted living care, but you do not have a plan in place, it is time for emergency planning. Often times people start emergency planning following a hospitalization for a serious illness or injury. The earlier you seek assistance the more assets can be preserved.
In either case, I collaborate with your financial advisor and tax professional to come up with the best strategy for you. I also consider factors such as retirement accounts, estate plans, tax implications and more.
Why Hire A Lawyer?
The rules and regulations surrounding Medicaid are incredibly complex – and are constantly changing. There are also countless tasks such as filing paperwork, reporting your assets and communicating with government agencies. If you make a mistake, you stand to lose much more money than if you hire an attorney in the first place. With me on your side, you have an advocate to guide you with every step.
