Leave inheritance, not bills.
It’s no secret that a long-term illness late in life can wipe out your savings so that when you pass away, your family is stuck with medical bills instead of the hard-earned money you wanted to leave them.
Medicare does not cover most long-term care, unfortunately, and across the nation, just a single year of nursing home care can wipe out most couples’ retirement. The healthy spouse usually cannot afford to both support themselves and pay for nursing home care of the other spouse.
But Medicaid does cover long-term care, and, with the help of our attorneys, average Americans can qualify for Medicaid.
Think you can’t qualify for Medicaid? Think again. There are multiple provisions and methods of getting middle-class Americans qualified for Medicaid so that they can receive the nursing home care they need and leave an inheritance to their children and grandchildren. These methods are effective even if you think you earn too much from social security and other sources.
