Because nursing homes and home care are so expensive, many people run out of money and begin relying solely on Medicaid benefits. When they die, Medicaid can claim repayment through the Medicaid Estate Recovery Program.

If your assets are protected, Medicaid cannot take them. However, if you didn’t take steps to protect your home and other assets, Medicaid could place a lien on your home for the cost of your care. This means your heirs could miss out on the property you wanted to leave to them.

Fortunately, with the help of Medicaid planning experts, seniors can ensure their homes will stay in the family after their death and not be lost to estate recovery.

The best way to save your house from Medicaid recovery is by putting the house into an irrevocable trust. By transferring the home and other assets into an irrevocable trust, you can still reserve an interest in the transferred assets. There are also tax benefits for children if a trust is used as an alternative to gifting.

Contact the Elder Law Lawyers team to explore your options and start preparing for a better future.
