ELDER LAW & MEDI-CAL SERVICES OPTIONS
Medi-Cal can be confusing and the available services are hard to understand. With the laws constantly changing, it is hard for an individual to keep current. Fortunately, our law firm specializes in this area and can assist seniors with both Elder Law and Medi-Cal services planning.
WHAT IS ELDER LAW?
Elder law is a legal area that specializes in issues that affect seniors and the aging population. The objective of elder law planning is to prepare the elderly person for autonomy and financial freedom through proper financial planning and long-term care options. Elder law planning seeks to preserve a senior’s income and assets for use while they are alive.
With the substantial cost associated with nursing home care, many senior’s assets can be crewed up by these costs. This can leave a senior without any inheritance to pass along to their family. The primary alternative to privately paying the nursing home is Medi-Cal.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MEDICARE AND MEDI-CAL?
Medicare provides health coverage to individuals 65 and older or those with a severe disability regardless of income. Medi-Cal (California’s state-run and funded Medicaid program) provides health coverage to those families with very low income and seniors. This program pays for a variety of medical services for seniors with limited income and resources.
HOW MEDI-CAL CAN HELP
Medi-Cal provides many seniors with vital health insurance coverage, including wrap-around coverage for medical services not covered by Medicare. It also provides a safety net for seniors requiring long-term care who have exhausted their own financial resources.

Problems can occur when people don’t correctly coordinate all of the aspects of passing on their estate. If you have a well-drafted estate plan in place, you will ensure that your estate passes to whom you want, when you want, and is carried out in your chosen manner. With the right estate plan, you can rest assured that your family won’t have to endure a public process and face high probate costs. The government will also not be able to take a large portion of what you’ve spent a lifetime building. But you need to be aware of the many options that exist in estate planning – and you must choose your estate planning attorney wisely.
