Massive nursing home costs call for plan for Medicaid assistance

Generally, Medicaid is available in Texas to pay for an extended nursing home stay. However, the applicant for assistance must meet certain requirements, making it prudent to plan for Medicaid assistance in advance. The individual or married couple can facilitate that process by seeking the services of an attorney experienced in the practice of elder law.

Long-term care planning includes avoiding some common pitfalls

Whether one resides in Texas or another state, there are some basic pitfalls to avoid when considering retirement and vital long-term care issues. For example, the cost of long-term care, including the costs of daily health care for an extended period, may run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars in expenses. If long\-term care planning means purchasing insurance for a few thousand dollars per year in preparation, it can constitute the dodging of a major financial bullet in one's later years.

Long-term care planning may include planning for Medicaid

Texas and other states impose federal rules and regulations for qualifying for Medicaid assistance by elderly applicants. Because Medicaid is a primary source of funding for nursing homes and similar institutions, long\-term care planning may include planning for this federal program. For those who cannot afford insurance to cover nursing home or other long-term care, Medicaid may be the main available remedy.
