Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert Expands Into Elder Law And Medicaid Planning

Firm's Medicaid planning services alone regularly help clients save hundreds of thousands of dollars and get the long-term care they need, Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert reports

Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert, PA has expanded its areas of practice to include elder law, with a special focus on Medicaid planning, the firm reported. With many senior citizens today facing long-term costs of hundreds of thousands of dollars, Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert attorneys can help clients figure out how to pay for nursing home, assisted living facility or home health care without depleting their hard-earned assets. Elder law attorney services of other kinds will also be available from Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert, as one of the state's most successful personal injury practices expands on its decades-long tradition of helping the most vulnerable residents of Miami-Dade and Broward counties.

"We're proud to announce that we will now be representing clients in elder law matters, with a particular focus on effective, strategic Medicaid planning," Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert attorney Jason Neufeld said, "With many senior citizens in the area confronting six-figure annual care costs, the later years of life can be challenging for those who fail to prepare. We regularly help our clients allocate their assets in legal, ethical ways that that allow them to qualify for Medicaid, an option that can save them hundreds of thousands of dollars. With these and other elder law services, we are committed to making sure that senior citizens throughout Miami-Dade and Broward counties receive the respect, protection, and care they deserve."

With over 56 million nationwide now receiving coverage under the nation's Medicare system, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, it might be thought that the care-related needs of aging people would be well provided for. In fact, though, the Medicare system only provides coverage for "medically necessary care" meaning that participants receive very limited help with most of their long-term care needs. The Medicare long-term-care benefit is limited to 100 days of rehabilitative or skilled nursing care over the course of an elder's lifetime.

While Medicare is open to most Americans of qualifying age, regardless of their financial status, Medicaid is meant to provide support to those with low income and assets. But, unlike Medicare, Medicaid will pay for many long-term care needs, including nursing and home-health services, along with some assisted-living arrangements.

In many cases, elderly people discovering this fact feel torn between wasting their lives' savings on paying for expensive long-term care or purposely driving themselves into poverty to qualify for support from Medicaid. Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert attorneys help clients sidestep this dilemma altogether. By making use of established, ethical, legal strategies, Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert lawyers can help clients arrange their income, real estate and financial assets such that they qualify for long-term care support from Medicaid without descending into poverty.

This service alone can help Neufeld, Kleinberg & Pinkiert clients save hundreds of thousands of dollars, and it is only one example of the kinds of valuable elder law services the firm now provides.
