Nursing Home Admission with Medicaid

Worried you might be denied for nursing home admission with medicaid? Watch this video. Then give our experienced Buffalo elder law attorney a call.

Clients often ask me whether or not they will be able to get into a nursing home if they’re paying only with Medicaid. The law prohibits nursing homes from discriminating against patients that are soon to go on Medicaid. However, the reality is that they will often say that beds are not available. When you’re doing your estate planning and Medicaid planning with your attorney, you may want to consider whether or not you would wish to get into a good nursing home and hang on to your assets, rather than gifting assets and being denied a good nursing home.
