Medicaid Planning Archives

Medicaid planning could protect a family's life savings

Aging Florida residents who want to make arrangements for the possibility of long-term nursing care might investigate a process known as Medicaid planning. Medicaid is a government run program for low-income people that could pay for hospital bills, nursing home care, at-home care, prescriptions and other medical expenses. Nationwide, the Medicaid program assists about two-thirds of nursing home residents. Medicaid planning describes the process of qualifying for Medicaid benefits down the road. This generally requires redefining income and assets so that they do not count against Medicaid eligibility.

Medicaid planning can be important for couples needing care

For people in Florida, preparing for future medical expenses can be a major concern. This is especially true when someone needs to take advantage of the long-term care provisions of Medicaid when dealing with serious disabilities or a need for memory care or other residential facilities. Spouses in particular may be concerned about the way Medicaid's rules about assets relate to their future planning.

What is a special needs trust?

A great way to protect the wellbeing of family and loved ones is to create a will and designate assets to certain beneficiaries. That way, the people you care about will be taken care of after you pass away. This seems simple enough, but what about when you have a family member or loved one who has special needs, a disability or is elderly?
