Rippy, Stepps & Associates offers valuable information and up-to-date legal advice having to do with preplanning to qualify for Medicaid. This may be a “someday” issue in your mind or it may be a more pressing need as a loved one’s vitality is declining. The closer you or your loved one is to a time of needing Medicaid coverage for long-term care, the fewer options you may have.
