The Connection between Medicaid and Estate Planning

Medicaid is a government program that was designed to provide financial assistance for people over the age of 65 and those who are disabled. Medicaid was designed to help individuals who could not afford medical expenses. Currently, many middle-class Americans use Medicaid to pay for expensive medical care at the end of their lives.

To avoid draining your finances in order to qualify for financial assistance, it is important to work with experienced Greensburg Medicaid attorneys. At David K. Lucas & Associates, we have more than 40 years of experience working with individuals throughout Western Pennsylvania to protect their assets and their family through Medicaid application process.
