Medicaid Planning for Your Loved Ones

Medicaid Planning for Your Loved Ones

More than 10% of  Americans are over the  age of 65 and 7% of the over 65 population is in a nursing home.

We are living longer and a larger  proportion of older persons will need nursing home care at some time in their life.

The Michigan Department of Human Services reports that the average monthly cost of nursing home care in Michigan for 2009 is $6362.  That is $76,344 per year!

Even a relatively short term stay at a nursing home care can wipe out all of a family’s savings and can leave the spouse of an nursing home patient impoverished.

Many  families with elderly persons in need of long term care don’t seek qualified counsel until they’ve nearly exhausted all of their resources.  Most people are unaware that such benefits exist.

But after their saving are gone, 7 out of 10 of every of Michigan's nursing home residents end up relying on the Medicaid Program to help pay for their care.   We can help to preserve those assets for the stay-at-home spouse or the family.  If you have a family member  who is in a nursing home, or faced with the possibility in the near future, please call us to see how our Medicaid planning can help you.

We can guide you through the Medicaid eligibility process and help your family to get the maximum benefit available to you.

Please call us for a free consultation to see how we can assist you.  (989) 835-6511 or 1-(800) 877-6511.
