For New Jersey SeniorsÂ preparing for the future and facing the prospect of long-term care with moderate income and assets, you eventually mayÂ have to rely on Medicaid to pay part or all of the cost of care.
Medicaid planning, using a qualified elder law attorney, allows you to correct inequities in the system. Medicaid planning has gotten a bad name because some individuals, who would normally have too many assets to ever qualify for Medicaid, deliberately use it, many years in advance, to give away everything to their family so as to qualify for Medicaid. It is wrong to abuse the system in this way and to use taxpayer dollars to insure an inheritance for the family. And if that person is not anticipating immediate care, this strategy is just plain dumb.
