Hello, thank you for joining us. Allow me to introduce the man in charge. This is Ethan. He’s a husband, father, Christian, tech geek, Beetles fan, and a lawyer. But don’t hold it against him. His job at the Huizenga Law Firm is to help you preserve and protect your personal and financial legacies. Today, he’s going to tell you about the difference between Nursing home workers and Medicaid experts.
Nursing Home Workers
Nursing home employees are compassionate and caring. They do a job I don’t think I could ever do myself and we need them to help preserve the dignity of our aging population. They’re experts at providing physical care for people who cannot care for themselves.
But they’re not experts at planning for the financial transition and even burden that goes with that goes with living in a long-term care facility. They aren’t Medicaid planners.
In fact, they would probably prefer it if you didn’t plan for Medicaid since Medicaid reduces the rate they can charge for their incredibly important services.
Talk with a Medicaid expert before you talk to the nursing home admissions or social worker. You can go into the entrance interview armed with knowledge they won’t be able to give you as you make decisions about where, how and when mom should receive her care.
We want to help, but this isn’t legal advice and you can’t become a client just by watching this video. Instead, go to www.huizengalaw.com or 712-737-3885 to learn more.
