Medi-Cal Benefits and Nursing Care

January 21, 2020


The time may come that you or a loved one needs the skilled nursing care provided by a specialized facility. For many individuals and families, the cost of a nursing facility can be prohibitive, or quickly drain other resources such as a retirement fund. 


The average skilled nursing care facility costs over eight thousand dollars per month!


Medi-Cal does cover the cost of nursing facilities, but only for those who qualify for the program. If you or your loved one fails to qualify for Medi-Cal due to ownership of certain assets, you might benefit from the assistance of an experienced estate planning attorney. 


We can help you reposition assets, so that you or a family member can qualify for Medi-Cal benefits. And in some cases, we can help you take additional steps to reduce your share of the cost so that Medi-Cal will completely cover the cost of skilled nursing care in an appropriate facility. 


If you have questions on how you or your loved one can qualify for Medi-Cal, while preserving assets within the family, please contact Shoup Legal. We'll be happy to assist you.
