Professional Advice - Experienced Representation - Premiere Client Service
Medicaid planning requires foresight and an experienced attorney. Many clients can accomplish their needs by creating a special needs trust. Medicaid laws have become more stringent. Like estate planning, Medicaid planning should be done in advance because by the time you need it, your options are often limited.
Located in the Chicago-Naperville area, Denice Gierach provides experienced representation for families planning Medicaid. Attorney Gierach understands the complexities of the laws and requirements for Medicaid. As an attorney and a CPA, she understands how to properly strategize to minimize the impact of Medicaid and preserve your estate.
We will take the time to listen to your goals and concerns, discuss the laws and your options. We also can explain some of the tools that can be used to prepare you or your parents for Medicaid or other long term care. Medicaid planning can be part of a comprehensive estate plan, including powers of attorney and special needs trusts, to address healthcare issues.
Medicaid planning must take into account the five year look-back period. In other words, gifts given to children may still be counted as part of your assets when determining Medicaid eligibility.
