What is Medicaid Planning?


Many aging people find themselves in need for nursing home care. Unfortunately, your regular health insurance will not cover this overwhelming expense and for many private pay is not an option. In fact, many nursing home residents spend their entire life savings to pay for expensive long-term care costs. That does not have to be the case…there is a better way.

By organizing a Medicaid plan prior to actually being in need for immediate coverage, you can be well-prepared for health issues and nursing home costs that may come your way in future years.

Medicaid planning is a way for people to afford rising long-term care costs while protecting their assets for loved ones. Medicaid is both a federal and state program that offers assistance to individuals who meet certain income and asset requirements, including those over 65 or who suffer from disabilities. The point of Medicaid planning is asset protection, preserving your assets for your loved ones, and providing for your spouse should you need to be in a long-term care nursing home.
