Qualifying for Medicaid and VA Benefits
Qualifying for Medicaid is not simply a matter of filing an application. You could easily wind up spending tens of thousands without a good plan to qualify for benefits. Residents of nursing homes become eligible for Medicaid benefits only after meeting strict financial requirements.

Nursing home managers are not qualified to help nursing home applicants determine Medicaid benefits. As an experienced elder law attorney, Joseph Lehn has an in-depth knowledge of Medicaid law and can implement a variety of techniques to maximize asset protection for his clients. His knowledge is invaluable in developing your Medicaid plan, and he will act in your best interests.

Proof of service and other documentation is generally required. Let attorney Joseph Lehn help you get the VA benefits that you’re entitled to.
