Did you know that 50% of people 65 years or older will spend some time in a nursing home and that it costs $8,000 a month for such care? Because neither health insurance nor Medicare covers these costs, losing one’s life savings to such costs is a natural fear.

The course discusses ways to avoid the nursing home, in-home care options, payment options, long term care insurance, life insurance conversions and hybrids, Veteran’s and Medicaid benefits, special needs trusts, and more.

There have been significant changes to the Medicaid and VA rules. For example, did you know that paying a caregiver can disqualify you from receiving Medicaid benefits? Learn how to avoid the Medicaid “Estate Recovery” law, which seeks repayment from a person’s estate for benefits paid.

Learn about the VA’s proposed look-back period which causes ineligibility if you make a gift or purchase an annuity within three years of applying for VA benefits. The course is taught by estate planning attorney Christopher Lindsay.
