MassHealth / Medicaid Planning

New Bedford MassHealth Lawyer

The cost of nursing home care can be considerable. Recent estimates for 2017, according to the Genworth 2017 Cost of Care Survey, revealed that a private room in a nursing home costs about $97,000 a year. A semi-private room costs about $85,000 a year. These figures are disheartening, to say the least. Few families can afford such care, and they may feel that they are out of options.

Navigating the process of applying for MassHealth benefits can be complicated and time-consuming, and that is why we at Tennyson LNC offer guidance and representation in this key area of elder law. Whether you are in immediate need of these benefits or are planning for the future, New Bedford elder law attorney Christine Tennyson can help.
