The Need For Medicaid Planning

June 3, 2013 in News

Article provided by ElderLawAnswers One of the greatest fears of older Americans is that they may end up in a nursing home. This not only means a great loss of personal autonomy, but also a tremendous financial price. Depending on location and level of care, nursing homes cost between $40,000 and $180,000 a year. Most people end up paying for nursing home care out of their savings until they run out. Then they can qualify for Medicaid to pick up the cost.

This depends on your situation, but in most cases, the prudent answer would be “yes.” The social worker at your mother’s nursing home assigned to assist in preparing a Medicaid application for your mother knows a lot about the program, but maybe not the particular rule that applies in your case or the newest changes in the law. In addition, by the time you’re applying for Medicaid, you may have missed out on significant planning opportunities.

May 1, 2013 in News

By David A Coleman A codicil to a will is an amendment which varies the terms of an existing will. This amendment normally takes place in the context where a person want to change the assignment of property interests to other people.
