Medicaid planning end-of-life decision-making

Pennsylvania’s legislature has provided many government programs to assist citizens with escalating medical and long-term care expenses. If you or a loved one requires skilled nursing care at home or in a long-term care facility, your savings, and financial resources may be consumed very quickly. Marsh Law has the expertise to help.

  • For seniors who are financially eligible, the “PDA Waiver” program provides care in the home paid for by Medicaid. While the Medicaid PDA Waiver program does not provide 24-hour care, it can be of great assistance for seniors who are partially independent or who have family or friends who can help as caregivers.
  • Marsh Law helps seniors and their families restructure the assets, property, income, and belongings of the person requiring long-term care assistance. This is done so these assets do not impact eligibility for benefits.
