Medicaid Planning

It’s never too soon to start planning for Medicaid or long-term care, especially when a spouse or parent may need nursing home care. Unfortunately, many people have yet to plan for long-term care or are misinformed about how Medicaid actually works. Many families are unaware who is eligible and how a Nursing Home Medicaid Plan can benefit their family.

There are a few key things to remember when it comes to Medicaid. It’s almost never too late to plan.

Your family or spouse can still receive Medicaid assistance even after a loved one has moved to a nursing home.

It’s important to apply in a timely manner. Applying too early or too late may result in longer periods of ineligibility, which can lead to many months of additional out-of-pocket expenses.

It’s also important to recognize legal protections for the spouse and family of a nursing home resident. Many times, families are afraid they will lose their home, savings, and personal property if their spouse or loved one has to move to a nursing home.

Numerous financial safeguards are available for elderly people and couples without jeopardizing Medicaid eligibility.
