I'm eagerly awaiting a meeting with someone in Elder Law to find out about qualifying for Medi-Cal. (Note: Medicaid in California is called Medi-Cal.) I understand about spending down and/or setting up trusts in order to get my parents qualified for the care they need.
But just curious to hear from everyone out there.
How long did it take you to get trusts set up if you went that route?
How long did it take to hear about qualification?
If your parent needed Assisted Living or a SNF, how long did it take before you were able to move them in and get Medicaid/Medi-Cal coverage?
Just curious about experience out there and to start a discussion. Thanks all!
