What Is Medicaid Planning?
“Medicaid planning” is a term that refers to a wide range of services. Generally speaking, it is any form of assistance for Medicaid applicants. As a branch of elder law, Medicaid planning can encompass everything from assistance with your application to a complete overhaul of your assets.
Unlike the federal program Medicare, Medicaid guidelines are set state-by-state. Arkansas sets its own unique eligibility and coverage criteria, types of service covered, payment levels, and administrative procedures.
Because of the particularities of Arkansas law, it’s important to have an expert planning attorney on your side to help you structure your assets. At Jurist Law Group, we take every opportunity to ensure that your Medicaid plan is structured in such a way to get the most out of your application.

If You’re Wondering, “Do I Need An Attorney To File An Application For Medicaid Coverage In Little Rock?” The Answer Is Likely Yes.
Prospective applicants are not legally required to hire an attorney to file for these important benefits. However, an experienced Medicaid planning attorney can provide a substantial resource along the way. Any misstep in the application process can leave you with a denial, a delay, or a loss of benefits compensation. Attorney D. Kimbro Stevens works to make sure that each client’s claim is filed in a way that maximizes their potential benefits.
One of the best ways to ensure that you get the most out of your Medicaid benefits is to start planning early. While a pristine application can provide a favorable review, your assets will ultimately determine your eligibility for benefits. Therefore, it’s important that your income does not exceed the Income Cap that is published for the state of Arkansas in the year of your application. (As of 2022, this starts at an annual income of $18,075 for a single-person household in AR.)
So, How Can You Restructure Financial Assets To Meet Financial Eligibility Limits?
There are a variety of strategies that we can use to meet Medicaid eligibility requirements. Some of these may include, but are not limited to:
- Medicaid Trusts
- Transfer of Ownership to Family Members
- Spousal Transfers
- Irrevocable Funeral Trusts
- And more . . .

How and When Should We Apply for Medicaid?
Well, the How? is easy: you hire me. The When? is the point at which you need long-term care, as you can’t apply for Medicaid before that point. In Arkansas, we do have Medicaid for home-based care, plus some limited Medicaid for assisted living, and then, of course, all states have Medicaid for nursing home care. Read more
Is It Too Late to Save Resources If Our Loved One Is Already in the Nursing Home?
It’s never too late to save money. If, however, you wanted to save 100% of your money, you should have started planning five years before you needed Medicaid (through a Medicaid asset protection trust). You can give assets away, but any assets you give are counted for five years against you for Medicaid purposes. Read more
