Turlock Medi-Cal Planning Lawyer
Affording months, let alone a year, of nursing home care without completely depleting an estate is something almost no family can afford. Long-term care insurance may offset costs, but Medicaid is often the more suitable option. In California, the program is called Medi-Cal.
Medi-Cal governs long-term care benefits for those parties eligible under federal and state Medicare guidelines. Through proper estate planning, it is possible to qualify for these benefits while protecting assets from future recovery. It is important to realize, however, that Medi-Cal covers long-term care in certain skilled facilities. As such, it is crucial to look at all issues if you or a loved one is considering in-home or other forms of assisted care.
