Often times mom and/or dad fail to buy enough (or any) Long Term Care Insurance when it is affordable during their younger ages… This means, they may need to significantly spend most of their money before becoming Medicaid eligible.
It’s a shame to hear people say: “Mom’s in a nursing home, and in about 10 months or so she’s going to run out of money and can then go on Medicaid.”

Common Questions About Medicaid Readiness

At the time of this writing, the cost of Long Term Care runs about $100,000 per year.
The client (resident) is responsible for these costs.
If you’re in your 60s or even 70s, you could purchase a Long Term Care policy. Many of these policies are happy to pay benefits even if you stay in your own home – being cared for by others, even a family member can be paid for these services.
Then you’ll have top “private pay” with your own money until you qualify for Medicaid benefits.
Good news… Many times there are legal, ethical, and moral ways to preserve some of your wealth while still qualifying for certain government-sponsored benefits.
Often times it makes sense to look ahead toward this possible health event or period in one’s life, skillfully making the best decision to preserve family wealth, as, and if that day comes.
