Proactive Medicaid Planning – An Overview for Estate Planning Attorneys
Planning for a client’s long-term care should be part of any estate plan. The costs of assisted living and nursing homes are a significant burden to most American families. If these costs are not considered, even the most sophisticated estate plan can be submarined by resource depletion. This is where proactive Medicaid planning can play a part in your estate planning practice. Given the appropriate foresight, these concerns can be proactively addressed as part of your clients’ plans, and legacies can be protected.
During this webinar, Jim Wolverton will take you through a high-level overview of threats your clients’ estate plans may face, cover the basics of Medicaid qualification, and explore proactive Medicaid planning strategies. He will also cover the basic structure of the ElderCounsel Medicaid Asset Protection Trust®, an irrevocable trust specifically designed for proactive Medicaid planning clients.
