Attorney Earns CMP™ Designation

The Law Offices of Jeffrey G. Marsocci, PLLC is pleased to announce that Mr. Marsocci has earned the Certified Medicaid Planner™ designation in order to better serve his clients and their families in preparing for or dealing with a long term health care crisis. A Certified Medicaid Planner™, also known as a CMP™, is a professional in the Medicaid planning field who has been awarded certification by the CMP™ Governing Board. Certification is granted based upon a qualified candidate demonstrating a mastery of the skills and knowledge of the subject matter.

To achieve certification, a CMP™ must meet certain education and/or experience requirements, show proficiency in Medicaid Planning through a thorough examination, and commit to adhere to the highest in professional standards.  A CMP™ also subjects himself or herself to discipline by the CMP™ Governing Board. A Certified Medicaid Planner™ is not necessarily an attorney, so this designation is not governed or regulated by any state bar association.

“I have worked in the Care Assistance Planning field for many years now, and I have done a lot of research specifically in Medicaid qualification for nursing home care,” Mr. Marsocci said. “What I have found is that Medicaid planning is not just about legal techniques, or just about insurance, or just about taxes ─ but it encompasses a broad range of knowledge. I’m happy to now be affiliated with an organization that sets high testing and ethical standards in this field and is working with attorneys, financial advisors, accountants and care managers to help families going through some very difficult times find the financial assistance they need.”
