Emergency and Advance Medicaid Planning

Over two thirds of families who commit someone to ongoing nursing home care run out of money within the first year, primarily due to the extremely high cost of these facilities.  Additionally, Medicare will not cover lengthy stays in nursing homes. If this sounds like the situation your family is facing, do not despair; the Stano Law Firm can help.

Many people are eligible for some form of public assistance to help defray the costs of care and preserve their assets at the same time. Whether this assistance comes in the form of Medicaid benefits, Veterans benefits or some other source, the Stano Law Firm can help you develop a comprehensive plan that will address both the medical and financial needs of your family.


“It’s important to know your options on Medicaid, or if you can qualify for VA benefits”

“Paul Stano is a fantastic resource for families who are looking at what their options maybe when it comes to the best care possible for themselves or their loved ones. In our home healthcare business, we face situations where individuals eventually may need to move from receiving care at home into an assisted living or a nursing facility. It’s important to know your options on Medicaid, or if you can qualify for VA benefits so you can figure out what your next step can be. Paul can help people receive additional income or benefits they may not have known were available to help pay for long-term care. He can also help people protect a considerable amount of their assets from going to pay for nursing home expenses. I’ve invited several of my clients to go to his seminars, I’ve attended myself and I can tell you get a lot of great information there. Paul is someone that you can trust and someone who can bring comfort in knowing has helped you identify all your options before making a final decision on where or how you life’s journey continues.
