If you’re like most retired Americans, you worked hard to save and invest for your retirement, but are you doing anything to help protect your assets from the staggering costs of long-term care?
Most seniors are unaware of the potential costs associated with long term care. The national average annual cost for nursing home care is $75,000 a year. This average is only going to rise as time goes on. Most think that Medicare will pay for long-term nursing home stays. This assumption couldn’t be further from the truth. Medicare will pay for only 100 days in a nursing home and will not pay for assisted living costs. Beyond the 100 days, a person must either self pay, have long-term care insurance, qualify for Medicaid, or they will be sent home.
Since one out of every two people will need long-term care, this can be a devastating time for many. Fortunately, you do not have to deplete your assets to qualify for Medicaid. S.A.F.E. Planning has mastered pre-planning so you can protect 100 percent of your assets should long-term care be needed. With licenses in nine states and offices in Shreveport, Louisiana, and Lakewood Ranch, Florida, S.A.F.E. Planning provides financial protection programs designed specifically for the needs of seniors.
Medicaid is NOT Welfare. Many people believe that Medicaid is strictly for indigent cases. Medicaid is an entitlement program, like Social Security, and seniors have already paid for it. Medicaid for long-term care is an entitlement program established under title XIX of the Social Security Act READ MORE which, over time, has become viewed, not as an entitlement program, but rather as a form of Welfare due to congress’s misappropriation of funds.
