    Florida Medicaid Attorney - Helping you Protect your Assets From Nursing Home

    Deciding on an attorney to handle sensitive issues related to elder law is not always easy. You need someone with legal knowledge who can advocate tenaciously for your rights but who is also caring and compassionate.

    When you need counsel and guidance related to elder law, Michael T. Heider, P.A., is the firm to represent you. Attorney Michael T. Heider has more than 15 years of experience serving elder law clients throughout Florida. In addition to being a knowledgeable attorney, he is a licensed certified public accountant (CPA). We handle a range of issues related to senior citizens.

    Protecting Your Assets From Nursing Home Expenses

    Assisted living facilities such as nursing homes are immensely expensive. Fortunately, you can use proactive measures to preserve your assets while you are in a nursing home. Through estate planning tools, long-term care insurance, trusts and more, we can help you pass your wealth to the next generation while ensuring that you have high-quality long-term care.

    Skillful Planning For Medicaid Eligibility

    If you plan to use Medicaid, you must plan carefully to preserve your assets yet make sure you are eligible to receive benefits. Under the Medicaid lookback period, you cannot transfer or sell a certain amount of assets within 60 months from the date that you apply for Medicaid. If you do, you could not only jeopardize your eligibility but also incur a penalty. When you work with Mr. Heider, he can help you plan how to handle your assets to qualify for Medicaid.
