Medicaid Planning

Ohio Medicaid Planning Lawyer

Do You Need Help Qualifying for Medicaid?

There are legal ways preserve your assets and still qualify for Medicaid.

At Budish, Solomon, Steiner & Peck, LTD, our Ohio Medicaid planning attorneys work with clients who are worried about losing their life savings to the high cost of nursing home care. With nursing home stays costing as much as $6,000 or more per month, it is easy to spend all the life savings you worked so hard to accumulate.

Cleveland Nursing Home Planning Lawyers Protecting a Lifetime of Assets

Our elder law and estate planning lawyers help potential Medicaid applicants and their families protect as many assets as the law will allow and ease the transition from home to assisted living to nursing home. Using a variety of estate planning and asset protection tools, including various types of trusts, we can protect your assets. We help make sure your family − not nursing homes − benefit from your hard work.

We often work with clients on a retainer basis for three to five years to plan for Medicaid eligibility and the Medicaid application itself. We have a number of programs to assist our clients, including the Medicaid Assistance Plan (MAP) and the Application for Medicaid Plan (APP).

Headed by Laurie Steiner, Certified Elder Law Attorney by the National Elder Law Foundation (approved by the Commission on Specialization of the Supreme Court of Ohio), our Medicaid planning team works very closely with the family to ensure that the critical planning steps are taken correctly. We work with the family, the nursing home and the Department of Job and Family Services to ensure that Medicaid eligibility is obtained in the shortest and least costly manner.

Keeping Up With Changes in Medicaid Law

All of the Medicaid planning attorneys at our law firm constantly monitor the myriad changes that occur on an almost daily basis to Medicaid law, both in Ohio and nationally. We help our clients navigate those changes effectively. We would be honored to help you, too.

Bedford, Ohio

"Once again my sincere thanks for the thorough and efficient manner in which you've handled everything and given my parents complete peace of mind."

Concord, Ohio

"We cannot adequately thank you enough for your time, talents and expertise explaining what needs to be accomplished for our parents Medicaid applications. You were so thorough, so patient in listening to us whenever we began relating stories about family issues, and so knowledgeable. Thank you so very much for your competent direction."

Chagrin Falls Ohio

"We were greatly relieved as a family to have Laurie Steiner's guidance and great insight into elder care/family law as I moved my father and developmentally challenged sister to NE Ohio. With that brought layers of decisions from various factions of benefits/laws/governances. And during my father's final days she and her colleagues were amazingly astute and responsive as we considered all options should my father's condition linger. And more recently, an unusual, often misunderstood situation with my sister's Medicare Premium benefits when it was only Laurie that could bring any clarity to otherwise well-meaning staffs of people whose job it is to understand the complicated nuances the Medicare/Medicaid benefit system often presents."
