"Breaking Through the Medicaid Maze" w/ Jim Berger
Medicaid is a welfare program originally created to provide health care to our nation's poor. Due to the lack of any other program, Medicaid has by default become the long-term care insurance of the middle class. With the help of elder law attorneys, those needing long-term care can qualify for Medicaid by making the decisions they would most likely have carried out after their passing beforehand. Some consider this an impoverishment of one’s own financial resources or on the other hand it can be careful pre-planning, in order to qualify and preserve savings for a healthy spouse or children. At this seminar, Jim and Mary Ann will be discussing with health care professionals about what to look out for and how to create strategies for attaining Medicaid approval for their clients.
This is a closed group seminar only available to those working for The Health Care Resorts of Kansas City employees. If you'd be interested in Berger Estate & Elder Law P.A. hosting a similar event at your community Call us at (913) 491-6332
