How Are You Going to Pay the Next Nursing Home Bill?
Medicare coverage for nursing home expenses is great…for up to 20 days. After that you are looking at a co-pay of over $160/day with Medicare (and that doesn’t last longer than 100 days anyway).
Your Life Savings
You can use your life savings. But ask yourself this: while you were working hard the last 40+ years and paying your taxes did you do it to pay a nursing home administrator’s bloated salary or was it to leave something for your family?
Sell Your House
You can sell your house, but that is only going to buy you a little time. What happens when that money runs out? What happens to your spouse who needs a place to live?

- The Business Office Manager calling you to collect.
- Potential litigation and eviction from the nursing home.

And Now Some Words From Our Clients
Richard Shea is a knowledgeable, patient and reliable attorney. My husband’s Parkinsons reached the point where he needed to be in a nursing home. When it became necessary to apply for Medicaid, Richard guided me through the process with all its mazes and thorny points. He helped to cut my husband’s nursing home and medical expenses to under $100 per month while saving us the $4,000-$5,000 it would have cost without Medicaid. I was also able to preserve over $30,000 when Rich helped to protect my unprotected cash. What impresses me the most about Rich is how accessible he is. Whenever I had a question or was pondering which course of action to take, a quick text or e-mail was all it took. He always answered promptly and with sound advice. It didn’t matter how small or seemingly unimportant the question, he replied without making me feel foolish. He made me feel like we were a team working together for the best outcome. I highly recommend the Shea Law Firm.
My wife and I hired Rich when Medicaid refused to cover my mother’s expenses. My mother clearly qualified, but Medicaid did everything they could to avoid fulfilling their obligations. Rich agreed to meet with us right away. He developed a plan for success and was always prompt and courteous. He also “spoke” the Medicaid and VA language and helped us make sense of the HHSC correspondences. We were forced to go to hearing, but Rich was with us every step of the way, always well-prepared and willing to fight the system. We prevailed on every issue. I estimate that we saved about $12K in inappropriate Medicaid charges. We checked around and Rich’s fees are more than competitive. Don’t be pushed around – hire Rich!
I knew we needed assistance for future care of my mother and I was hearing information from so many sources. I found Richard Shea online, read the bio of what services he provides and bingo, dialed the phone. That was a good day for our family. With five grown adults in multiple states we needed one source of legal advise. We needed to apply for Medicaid for my mother and make sure our sibling with disabilities was protected. Mr. Shea helped us sort out years of banking/annuities and paperwork. The monthly care of our mother went from $8,525.00 to $1,394.56. We protected a bit of money for my sister for future care. Within a few months we went from panic on how to proceed to breathing a huge sigh of relief. My mother is getting great care she can afford and it would not of happened without Richard Shea. I highly recommend his services, his calm personality is a huge plus. Thanks, Richard.
