Elder law covers a broad range of topics, but the underlying purpose of this area of law is to protect the rights and well-being of the senior community. This is a responsibility that attorney Vance E. Hendrix takes very seriously.
Mr. Hendrix routinely handles an array of elder law issues, including Medicaid planning, advance directives, and the creation and funding trusts. For years, his experience and accessibility have instilled confidence in his clients, as well as his ability to tailor individualized plans to fit their needs.
Medicaid is designed to provide needs based assistance, including healthcare to senior citizens — ages 65 and up — who may not otherwise be able to afford it. The purpose of Medicaid planning, then, is to help ensure that you are in a position to be eligible for Medicaid when you reach your golden years.
Because the laws that pertain to Medicaid are constantly being updated, and because eligibility requirements vary from state to state, it’s important that you seek information from a trustworthy, reliable source. As an experienced elder law attorney, Mr. Hendrix can educate you on current Medicaid requirements in the state of Texas. Additionally, he can help you determine whether Medicaid planning is right for you and guide you through your next steps.
