Medicaid Veritas Law: Defending Truth, Upholding Justice

How Will Your Lawsuit Affect Your Medicaid?

Grand Junction Injury Attorneys Protecting Benefits for the Injured

If you are receiving Medicaid benefits or other federal need-based financial assistance and were injured in an accident, you don't have to be afraid to pursue a claim for the compensation you deserve. Just because you are receiving Medicaid benefits does not mean you cannot pursue a claim against the party that caused your injuries.

Pursuing that claim will allow you to be compensated for all your damages, not just medical treatment. There are legal options that allow you to protect your assets from being counted against you.

Veritas is recognized as one of the pre-eminent personal injury litigation firms serving clients in communities along the Front Range and Western Slope and in mountain resort areas across Colorado.

Why Consider Setting up a Self-Settled Special-Needs Trust?

In 1993, Congress passed a law enabling injured people to set up self-settled special-needs trusts with the compensation received for their injuries. Under the law, money placed into such trusts will not be counted as income or assets regarding Medicaid eligibility.

In addition, money placed into these trusts cannot be used to reimburse the government for medical treatment paid through the federal Medicare or Department of Veterans Affairs benefits program.

We offer a free consultation to discuss the circumstances of your accident and explain how a settlement or jury award may affect your eligibility for Medicaid and other public assistance. Call us to discuss your questions with one of our Grand Junction attorneys — (970) 292-7171.
