Many readers of this blog have hopefully used the services of an attorney who is experienced in elder care and Medicaid law. Now, a new category of Medicaid planning assistance is available from a category of professional planners known as Certified Medicaid Planners.

Their common goal is to provide the most cost-effective Medicaid plan for every Medicaid beneficiary.
