Virginia Elder Law
Elder law is another aspect of estate planning, focusing primarily on the needs of families and individuals as they age. Issues of aging include senior housing and home care, long-term (or nursing home) care, guardianships and health care documents, Medicare and Medicaid.Â
Medicaid is a joint federal-state program, subject to certain federal requirements, each state implements its own regulations on how the program is managed. Medicaid is not an entitlement program like Medicare, but rather a form of welfare. Medicaid eligibility is determined after the proper application is submitted to the commonwealth. There are many Medicaid insurance programs available in Virginia, from basic medical coverage to nursing home programs. Information about Medicaid for long-term care in a nursing home or community setting can be found on the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services website.
The Virginia Department for the Aging provides a wealth of information for seniors and care givers.
We assist seniors and their families in making the tough decisions regarding long-term care planning, including whether Medicaid eligibility may be an option.
