Medicaid Planning: Your Guided Path To Long-Term Care

Expert Guides for Your Loved One’s Medicaid Journey

It is a rare occasion for someone to enjoy a straight and easy path to Medicaid long-term care benefits. Instead, it is often twisty, with obstacles along the way. However, when you work with one of our Certified Medicaid Planners, the journey can become straightforward after all. From gathering documentation to celebrating the approval of benefits, our experts are by your side at each step.

Fully understanding the Medicaid system takes years of study. Utilizing that system at maximum efficiency takes years of experience. But chances are good you don’t want to spend your time studying the system or filling out Medicaid applications. And you definitely won’t have the time to do it if there’s a sudden downturn in health and long-term care is needed without notice.

At Eldercare Resource Planning, we have the years of study and experience it takes to qualify for Medicaid long-term care coverage in nursing homes, assisted living or in home settings while maximizing your available resources. That’s what Medicaid Planning is all about. Whether you are engaging in long-term planning or dealing with a crisis situation, we are prepared to help you qualify, apply and start receiving benefits as fast as possible while preserving homes and other assets for your loved ones.

What Is a Certified Medicaid Planner™?

A Certified Medicaid Planner™ (CMP) has valuable expertise and training in the requirements for receiving Medicaid long-term care benefits. Our CMP employees help your loved ones manage their financial resources in preparation for this step.

Every CMP receives their credentials from the Certified Medicaid Planning Governing Board. The Board requires that candidates complete an Advanced Degree (JD or Master’s Degree), Bachelor’s or Associate’s Degree and minimum of two years full-time Medicaid Planning experience, or a minimum of four years full-time Medicaid Planning experience. Candidates also must complete 20 hours of continuing education every three years to maintain this certification. CMPs are not Elder Law Attorneys but some attorneys are CMPs.

How Does Eldercare Resource Planning Work?

At Eldercare Resource Planning, we offer a comprehensive Medicaid planning package. Our service supports families in making informed choices about how and when they should help a loved one apply for Medicaid benefits.

Our friendly experts help you gain answers to questions such as:

• Is my elderly relative eligible for long-term care Medicaid benefits?

• Does my loved one have to spend down their assets?

• Will my parents need to sell their home to qualify?

• How do we complete the application?

• When should we start this process?

• How can we save money for the applicant’s spouse?

What is the Process?

Each client starts with a free consultation with one of our Benefits Advisors to determine eligibility for your loved one. If you decide to continue with the Medicaid planning service, our team goes straight to work for you.

We coordinate with you to gather all of the necessary financial documents that you must include with your relative’s Medicaid application. Next, we help you save as much as possible while spending down your resource. We assist you in submitting everything to your relative’s state Medicaid office. The ECR Planning team can help with applications in every state.

If the state has additional questions or requests for records, we are right here to help you. Our job doesn’t end until your family member’s benefits are in place. You will be able to enjoy peace of mind, knowing that your loved one has financial stability in place for their care.
