Elder Law I: Medicare and Medicaid Planning

Tuesday, April 9, 2019 - 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

 

 

How can your clients obtain the best health and long-term care?   How can they protect their assets and income against the ruinous costs of care? Most are unaware of the realities of Medicaid eligibility and the benefits that come with this important benefits program.  

 

With this workshop, you will be able to assist your clients by answering questions, debunking common misconceptions, providing them with information about reliable strategies, and providing access to more resources. This course will cover:

  • The difference between Medicare and Medicaid
  • Eligibility and planning for Community Medicaid (including home care and assisted living)
  • Eligibility and planning for Nursing Home Medicaid (including the five-year “look back” and penalty periods)
  • Medicaid Asset Protection Trusts
  • Pooled Income Trusts

 

 

With this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize when Medicare will cover care, and when it is appropriate to seek Medicaid benefits
  • Understand the risks and costs of failing to plan for long-term care

  • Understand how clients can protect themselves and their assets if they need long-term care

  • Understand the different kinds of Medicaid, eligibility requirements and benefits

  • Understand how clients can protect their income and assets when receiving Community Medicaid benefits

  • Understand how clients can protect some of their assets if they have not planned ahead and unexpectedly need nursing home care
