Nursing Home Care and Medicaid Planning
It is drilled into your head that paying for college and buying a home are the biggest investments you will ever make. Not true. The cost of long term health care can dwarf college costs and home purchase expenses.
Home Health Aides charge $18.00-$25.00 per hour. An individual needing 24 hours of care can expect to pay almost $600.00 a day. Even a more limited 6 hours of daily care would still incur a $54,750 annual cost. A Nursing Home’s monthly cost can exceed $16,000.00.
Medicare can cover up to the first 100 days, but beyond that period you will have to pay that cost out of your pocket. That is $192,000 per year. For a family to preserve its assets in the face of this impending, monumental cost only Medicaid Planning from an Eldercare Attorney can offer the necessary protection.
In-Home Care and Medicaid Planning
People with long-term health care needs who require assistance may also apply for Medicaid Home Care. Home health care aides paid for by Medicaid will help with a variety of activities of daily living. Remaining in one’s home while receiving necessary care offers comfort to the disabled person as well as their loved ones. The professionals at Sloan and Feller will review your financial eligibility for Medicaid, complete and file your Medicaid Application and coordinate your transition to home care services.
