Financial Security Designs

Financial Security Designs guides clients on Medi-Cal applications, VA Benefits, Asset Protection and helps with the process of getting admitted to Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing Facilities.

Complimentary Initial Consultation

Understanding how Medicaid/Medi-Cal works in California can be difficult.

Who is eligible? Is it based on income? (Hint: No.) What’s covered?

How one’s family has situated their assets and their family member’s medical needs all play a role in the Medi-Cal eligibility process.

To qualify, there are specific medical and financial eligibility requirements. Certain assets are exempt from the Medi-Cal eligibility process, including a retirement account, a primary automobile, personal property, and a primary residence (up to a fixed value).

With proper gifting and/or re-positioning of assets, eldercare planning can be painless with proper and experienced guidance.

Financial Security Designs has been based in San Diego, California, proudly serving California Families and Veterans in the process of Medi-Cal Eligibility and VA Benefits in California for over 25 years.
