The 7 Biggest Mistakes of Getting Mom on Medicaid And How to Avoid Them

Do you know what it will take to become qualified for Medicaid? Or how much you can really save?

 

Learn the 7 biggest mistakes people make with Nursing Home Medicaid AND how to avoid other little-known Medicaid traps:

 

  • Can you still trust the “System” to take care of you in light of recent changes?

  • Is a 5-year head start absolutely necessary? How much can you save even if Mom needs care today?

  • How can you avoid losing everything to the “Move It or Lose It” Trap?

  • How can an Illinois “Spenddown” make you personally liable to pay for Mom’s care?

  • How can Iowa’s “Double Jeopardy” Trap make you pay personally for the same care…TWICE?

  • How can Joint Tenancy and Revocable Living Trusts interfere with your eligibility for Medicaid?

Whether you need Medicaid NOW, or planning for the FUTURE you owe it to yourself to attend!

“You want to live your life to the fullest now, and have the peace of mind that your wishes will be respected in the future.”

When it comes to your savings and assets, there’s one thing you know: They’re yours and no one else’s. You’ve worked hard for years at saving and investing. You want to be sure you don’t make a mistake with your money, especially not now. You want to enjoy the fruits of your labor as long as possible, and stay healthy and strong as long as you can, so you can live your “golden days” the way you’d like, with those you care about most. You also need to know that great care will be taken to assure your wishes and values are maintained throughout the estate planning process – that the “big decisions” you need to make will be the best for you and for those you love. It’s important for you to know you are in control and that you can trust the integrity and expertise of your legal counsel to assist you through the confusing legal and financial process of planning your estate. You want the legacy of your life to include your wisdom, not just your money and assets. And you don’t want to leave any “loose ends” for your loved ones to have to figure out after you’re gone. You want to live your life to the fullest now, and have the peace of mind that your wishes will be respected in the future. Our team is at your service to assure your wishes become a reality. Please call our office today to speak to an attorney!

The Estate Planning Process Building Blocks

The Estate Planning & Elder Law Firm of Jamieson Long & Associates | 309-764-2577 | 4101 John Deere Rd, Suite A | PO Box 927 | Moline, IL 61265

A helpful way to understand the estate planning process is as building blocks. The foundation is a thorough understanding of your needs, goals, dreams and aspirations. You want to be sure you (and your spouse, if married) are taken care of now and throughout your retirement years. Next, we need to have a clear perspective of your family members and family dynamics – the people who you care about and who will someday receive the benefits of your success. For many of our clients, family includes children and grandchildren. For others, it may be nieces and nephews, friends, or community. You are “the expert” on family matters. We will depend on you to teach us about your family. You can depend on us to counsel you about the law. After the foundation of personal goals and family relationships is established, you need to understand how to utilize the law to protect and preserve your assets, save taxes, and enhance your wealth. We will educate you about the legal process so you gain the results you desire and your estate plan becomes a reality. The final building block of your plan is made up of legal strategies and financial tools to keep you in control. This is the easiest part of your plan, once all the other blocks have been properly laid. By using this straightforward and efficient process, we will work together with you to build your estate plan exactly the way you want it – resulting in peace of mind for you and security for your loved ones. Please contact us today for a personal consultation.

What Should I Expect When I Hire An Elder Law Attorney?

I am considering engaging an elder law attorney to help with the Medicaid eligibility review, processing, and protection planning for my mother who needs to go to a nursing home. I want to make sure I choose the right attorney for this task since the costs for these legal services can be high. When hiring an elder law attorney, what should we expect for this service and what should we expect to gain in return?

Execute a Power of Attorney Before It’s Too Late

A durable power of attorney is an extremely important estate planning tool, even more important than a will in many cases. This crucial document allows a person you appoint — your “attorney-in-fact” or “agent” — to act in place of you — the “principal” — for financial purposes when and if you ever become incapacitated due to dementia or some other reason. The agent under the power of attorney can quickly step in and take care of your affairs.

Can Property in an Irrevocable Trust Be Sold or Gifted Without Restarting the Medicaid Look-Back Period?

My parents have an irrevocable trust that contains land, money, and real property. It was set up as part of Medicaid planning. If the trustees sell a part of the land, would it reset the five-year look-back period? Also, does this land have to sell at “market” value or can it sell to family at a discounted price? Finally, could this land simply be gifted without resetting the five-year look-back period?

Does Going into a Hospital from Rehab Restart Medicare’s 100-Day Payment Period?

My father is 85 years old and was hospitalized at the end of April. Upon being discharged, he went straight to rehab. His 100th day was August 17th. However, he has been back in the hospital twice during the time he’s been at the rehab facility. A friend told me that she had a similar situation with her mother and that when she returned to rehab after being in the hospital, her 100 days started over. She said she had to fight for it, but it would certainly be worth the fight if we could restart the 100 days.

Does an Executor Have a Deadline to Probate a Will?

My sister was named executor of our parents’ will. It has been three years since our parents passed away and my sister has not moved to probate the will. Does a will have to be probated within a certain length of time or can she drag it out forever?
