A Medi-Cal crisis situation is one in which an individual has either been admitted to a nursing home, or is about to be placed in a nursing home, and has been told that he or she has too much money or too many assets to qualify for Medi-Cal assistance. In this situation, the family is dealing with long-term healthcare costs that approach $7,500 a month, and the only source to pay those expenses seems to be the family’s life savings.
Even well-intentioned individuals, such as nursing home intake staff, social workers, Medi-Cal workers and others, often give families incorrect advice regarding their ability to qualify for Medi-Cal. However, as a law firm focusing on Elder Law, we have experience handling Medi-Cal Crises, know the law inside and out, and regularly help our clients preserve a significant portion, if not all, of their life savings. Seeing our clients through a crisis situation is one of our greatest strengths and an area of the law we find particularly gratifying.
