Is Medicaid Planning Legal In Colorado?

Even though some people simply don't like the idea that there are law firms and attorneys out there who help clients qualify for Medicaid coverage sooner. The reality is that Medicaid planning is completely legal when done correctly. In fact, not only can proper Medicaid planning save assets for your family, but every single Medicaid planning technique we use at The Hughes Law Firm is 100% legal under both federal and Colorado law.

While some people will always consider Medicaid a "welfare" program designed to only help the poor (and not the middle-class), the truth is that there are laws in place that dictate how and when a person can transfer/gift assets in order to qualify for Medicaid sooner ― meaning it is not only legal, but expected. Indeed, the Supreme Court of the United States has even said that there is nothing inherently sinister or illegal in arranging one's affairs to keep money out of the hands of the government.

So, why should you and your family have to lose everything before you can get Medicaid coverage while others who squandered their money their entire lives get Medicaid benefits right away? Simply put, you should not have to suffer simply because you tried to save for the future.

One of the worst things you can do is to attempt to hide assets and then not report them on your Medicaid application. To do so is fraud, which can get you into a lot of trouble. At The Hughes Law Firm, our lawyers can help you find a better ― and legal ― way to qualify for Medicaid sooner. Let us help you take full advantage of the laws currently in effect.
