Delaware State Bar Association
Dover - Kent County
Georgetown - Tunnell & Raysor
Overview of Medicare Benefits for Chronic or Extended Healthcare: This presentation focuses on benefits that relate to long-term or chronic illness. It will include a brief background discussion of the structure of Medicare benefits followed by a more in-depth review of requirements to qualify for and specific services offered under: 1) Inpatient Hospital Care, 2) Skilled Nursing Facility Care; 3) Home Health Care (including Home Health Aid services) and 4) Hospice Care. The goals are to provide background and also to provide resources that enable the practitioner to do further research on any questions that may arise. Introduction to Long-Term Care Medicaid: This is an introduction to asset preservation in the context of public benefits, particularly long-term care Medicaid. Working and middle-class consumers cannot afford the costs of long term care, which include, nursing homes, assisted living and in home care. Although most Americans will suffer some period of disability during their lifetime, the most common plan for paying for long term care is to spend until broke and then go on Medicaid. We will explore long-term care Medicaid basics and some concepts to protect assets while preserving benefit eligibility. dsb06092016Overv
