Not everyone who needs medical assistance belongs in a nursing home. With in-home care from trained professionals, many elderly and disabled New Yorkers are able to enjoy life in the comfort of their own home. This care is often provided via Managed Long Term Care (MLTC).
Is MLTC right for your loved ones? Are there steps you can take now to make sure this is an available option for you in the future? At Angiuli & Gentile, LLP, our lawyers have the answers you are looking for. We have been serving families in Staten Island for more than 30 years and look forward to helping you with your in-home care and elder law needs.
What Is MLTC?
Commonly referred to as Community Medicaid, MLTC is a combination of benefits through Medicare and Medicaid (dual eligibility) which together, provide in-home care and other long-term care services to those who meet the program's income and asset requirements.
If you choose to sign up with an MLTC company, the entity will put together an assessment of your needs, which can include among other things, services beyond medical care, such as nutrition support, psychological therapy, transportation and adult day care.
Planning For Managed Long Term Care in Staten Island
Our attorneys have extensive Medicaid planning and asset preservation experience, and can be relied upon to plan your estate in a way that protects your eligibility for MLTC while safeguarding your assets. One of the benefits of MLTC is that, unlike institutional Medicaid benefits, there is no "look back" period for MLTC recipients. This provides flexibility in Medicaid planning and can reduce the timeline for applying for benefits.
