Bluffton Medicaid Attorney Advocates for Your Eligibility

I help South Carolina clients get medical care

Unlike Medicare, which is an insurance program, Medicaid is an assistance program. Administered by state and local governments under federal guidelines, Medicaid provides tax dollars to assist low income people of every age with their medical bills. While Medicaid has stringent requirements for eligibility, those rules have a plethora of exceptions. Individuals facing long-term nursing home stays may use exceptions in the law to receive government assistance without forfeiting their homes, their community property or other estate assets. Mark F. Winn Attorney at Law, Professional LLC helps clients utilize legal exceptions to qualify for Medicaid benefits.

Advocating for your eligibility while protecting your assets

I can help ensure that you or a family member can receive crucial extended care without bankrupting a spouse or the rest of the family. I thoroughly review your finances, then develop an asset protection plan that won’t threaten your financial independence. The protections our plans offer ensure that you can:

  • Retain ownership of your home
  • Legally transfer property without incurring transfer penalties
  • Protect your spouse’s financial security
  • Get your nursing home to accept Medicaid rates

Trust a knowledgeable and experienced South Carolina Medicaid lawyer

With my comprehensive understanding of complex and technical federal and South Carolina Medicaid regulations, I can fully explain your rights and obligations to determine whether you are now — and can remain — eligible. To help you get the maximum benefit under the law and avoid penalties, I carefully explain the opportunities and pitfalls, including:

  • Medicaid applications
  • Estate recovery and liens
  • Undue hardship exception
  • State long-term care partnerships
  • Promissory notes and life estates
