Most seniors will likely require some form of long-term care and need to assess Medicaid Eligibility. We can help your family prepare for the unexpected financial burdens it places on their family’s assets. Assisted & Full Care rates usually exceed $10,000 or more per month.
Long-Term Care Options
While some seniors are able to afford private pay care, the cost of long-term care will wipe out savings of all but the wealthiest families in a matter of years. Those who have planned ahead by purchasing long-term care insurance have a degree of certainty and peace of mind, knowing that they have a lesser need to rely on other sources in the future.
The other option to pay for care is Medicaid. A joint federal-state program, Medicaid provides medical assistance to individuals, including those who are 65 or older, disabled or blind. Medicaid is the single largest payer of nursing home bills in America and serves as the option of last resort for people who have no other way to finance their long-term care. Although Medicaid eligibility rules vary from state to state, federal minimum standards and guidelines must be observed.
