Medicaid Planning and Elder Care Law
At Frenette & Associates, P.C., our goal is to protect older citizens and their assets. When nursing care becomes necessary, we can help maximize the legally available options for the transfer of assets to loved ones. Attorney Frenette has been a member of both NAELA and MNAELA for several years.
The rules for qualifying seniors for Medicaid coverage are constantly changing and subject to the rulings of administrative agencies. Attorney Frenette has over 25 years of experience in crafting Medicaid plans that meet the requirements of these agencies.
We provide legal guidance in:
- Preparing, filing and updating the Medicaid/MassHealth Applications and all required ancillary documents until a qualification is obtained
- Representing you before MassHealth at required hearings and any other representation needed before and after qualification
- Incorporating the Medicaid Plan into the client’s overall estate plan
- Continuing to represent the institutionalized client for the remainder of their lives to retain MassHealth coverage
Estate Planning, Trust & Probate
You may be subject to a variety of taxes at the end of your life. You need competent legal advice in order to preserve what’s left for your loved ones. This is where Frenette & Associates comes in to protect you from having too much taxation imposed on assets that could otherwise be passed down through generations with minimal tax burden.
Since inheritance can be subject to a variety of federal and state, estate, and income taxes, you need competent advice to preserve the value of your assets. This may involve gifts, trusts, powers of attorney and wills.
Things such as gifts or trusts can help protect financial assets from being dissipated by taxation after death. Call or email us today so we can discuss this further and make sure your loved ones are set up and taken care of after you pass.
