People with greater wealth often assume that Medicaid planning does not apply to their situation. However, families frequently underestimate future long-term care costs, and unforeseen medical needs may arise where a family member could benefit from Medicaid. By implementing crisis planning strategies, families can understand how to safeguard their assets within five years of a family member accessing Medicaid benefits.
In this interactive webinar, Buckingham’s Chief Planning Officer Jeffrey Levine will review why financially secure families should be aware of long-term care costs and how program benefits could play a role in their planning.
In this session, he’ll cover:
- The impact of long-term care costs on individuals and their families.
- Key features and provisions for Medicaid benefits and eligibility.
- The financial impact and associated penalties that could arise when receiving Medicaid benefits.
- Strategies to protect assets while accessing Medicaid benefits.
