Do you need help understanding the Medicaid application process? When you or your spouse can not afford the cost of a long stay in a Connecticut nursing home, call our office for guidance. Weatherby & Associates have earned the trust of families in Farmington CT and the greater Hartford area. When your spouse is battling dementia and must be in the care of a nursing facility, most families are shocked at the monthly expense of long-term care. Medicaid, or Title XIX is a state and federal program for people with limited assets who cannot afford nursing home care. The Medicaid application process is complicated, and there are many rules and deadlines that confuse most of us. For conditions such as dementia or Alzheimer's disease, patients need supervision around the clock for their own safety. Deciding to place your spouse into a nursing home is an emotional upset for most families.
Often, people expect that all their future health care and maintenance needs will be covered by their insurance plans. When it comes to caring for a patient suffering from dementia, long term care is a game changer. When an individual is going to need custodial care or must be permanently placed in a nursing facility, they must qualify for Medicaid. Medicaid, or Connecticut Title XIX, will pay for full time care in a nursing home - once the patient's assets have been liquidated. As a leading elder care attorney, Hank Weatherby will unravel the confusion associated with qualifying for Medicaid benefits.
There is no better time than now to start planning for your future and protecting your assets. Preparing for future health care needs should be started before retirement age. Preparation for future needs goes well beyond concerns about prescriptions, surgical intervention and doctor visits. What you do not know about long term care can evaporate your nest egg unless you prepare. Determining whether an individual may receive long term care and supports requires careful planning and asset management. Weatherby & Associates will supply the information you need to prepare for Medicaid and help you understand the eligibility requirements. When you need assistance with Medicaid Planning, call Weatherby & Associates PC at 860-769-6938.
