What Is Medicaid Planning in Utah?
Medicaid is a federal program funded by federal and state dollars. The rules for qualifying for the long-term care Medicaid program vary considerably from state to state. If you reside in Utah and need Medicaid, then Utah’s Medicaid program rules apply.

Guardianship & Conservatorship
A guardian or conservator is appointed when an individual is incapacitated and can no longer handle their own affairs, medically or financially. A guardian protects your loved one’s health and well-being, and a conservator protects their finances.
If a spouse, sibling, or parent did not create a power of attorney before becoming incapacitated, you won’t be able to help them without first petitioning the court for guardianship or conservatorship status. The court must approve the petition and agree with medical evidence supporting the degree of incapacitation.
Our firm can walk you and your family through the court process. Call us at (385) 481-5276 to get started on your service.
