Protecting Assets With Proper Medicaid Planning
The laws surrounding Medicaid and nursing home planning are constantly evolving and changing. This makes it very important to discuss your specific situation with a skilled lawyer who stays up to date on the latest laws in Michigan. At The Law Offices of Sean Patrick Cox, we will guide you through the complicated statutes that relate to your circumstances. Normally, there is a five year look back on transfers of assets. This transfer does not apply to married couples, however, so we are able to build a plan that meets your unique situation. Spouses are allowed to have a set amount of assets. Once the limit is reached, we are able to protect property above and beyond these limits by utilizing Medicaid trusts.
Medicaid Exemptions in Michigan
There are certain exemptions that apply to everyone. They include:
- A house up to $500,000 in value
- One car
- Prepaid funerals for up to $10,000
Depending on your circumstances, there are other exemptions as well. With our unique estate planning skills, we will be able to craft a plan that works for you and your family.
