Medicaid Planning for the Elder Law Attorney


Learn more about the Medicaid planning strategies that can benefit your potential clients.

The elderly population, those aged 65 and older, is the fastest-growing group of the population in the United States. Accordingly, many lawyers find themselves needing or wanting to incorporate elder law into their practice to meet the needs of this client population. However, diving into the world of Medicaid should not be done lightly as the complicated overlap between state and federal law and regulation and the nuances of each state's program are complex and ever-changing. This course will help practitioners looking to add elder law to their practice, or those looking to increase their skills in an already established practice, learn more about the Medicaid planning strategies that can benefit their potential clients. We will discuss the general eligibility rules of Medicaid programs and dive into the various planning techniques that will make clients eligible for Medicaid, reduce the risk of estate recovery, and protect assets.
