Planning for Incapacity or Illness - (602) 900-9860

For some families, it wipes out their lifelong savings accounts in just a few short years.

Our family-oriented Phoenix Medicaid attorneys at Thies & Lihn, PLLC care deeply about each client and can help navigate the complex rules and regulations that come with this type of planning. We serve clients throughout Maricopa County looking to plan and qualify for Medicaid (ALTCS) benefits.

Long Term Care Planning with Arizona Long Term Care System (ALTCS)

A joint federal-Arizona state program, ALTCS provides assistance to those who need help paying for long-term care, including those who are 65 or older, disabled, or blind. ALTCS has complex financial and medical eligibility requirements for those in need of long-term care benefits. It is no longer as easy as reviewing one’s bank statements. There are a myriad of regulations involving look-back periods, income caps, transfer penalties, and waiting periods to plan around.

ALTCS can be beneficial and includes:

  • Full coverage of acute care services
  • Nursing home care
  • Home and community-based services
  • Services for developmentally disabled adults and children

Eligibility for ALTCS

In order to receive ALTCS benefits, you must meet certain qualifications.

  • Have a medical need
  • Meet income limits
  • Meet resources/asset limits

We can help you determine your eligibility for long-term care benefits through ALTCS or Medicaid, and help you get the care you need.
