Elder Law Insights with Attorney Matt Margolis. We’re thrilled to interview Elder Law attorney Matthew Margolis to discuss Medicare, Medicaid and ways to get your legal house in order! Learn about Medicaid eligibility in Illinois nursing homes and how to protect assets when applying. A lot of people think that if they don’t protect their assets 5 years in advance, they are out of luck. This is not the case and many people are continuing to spend down their assets in nursing homes until they have nothing when they could be protecting some for their spouse, children, or grandchildren. www.margolisweldon.com
