Elder Law & Medicaid Planning

Personal care is expensive, whether in a nursing home, assisted living or in your home. The 2019 yearly median cost for care in Missouri:

Location Cost
Nursing Homes (single room) $68,255
Assisted Living $34,566
In Home Care $50,366

These costs, for the most part, are not covered by Medicare. However, Medicaid pays for those who qualify and, in some instances, for in-home care.

We guide you and your family through the Medicaid application process so you receive the benefits and care you're eligible for by:

  • Advance planning during your estate documents preparation
  • Assisting with the division of assets as directed by MO Healthnet when your family member is already admitted to a care facility
