Medicare vs. Medicaid

Medicare and Medicaid are often referred to interchangeably, but they are not identical programs and have different coverage benefits.The goal of Medicare, which is tied to eligibility for Social Security, is to provide affordable health insurance for the elderly. Getting set up with the right Medicare coverage can be confusing; having someone to help you navigate all the options can make the process feel less intimidating. To add to the challenge of setting up Medicare, there are private insurance companies that have supplemental insurance plans (Medicare Supplement or Medigap Insurance) to cover any medical expenses not met under Medicare.Medicaid, on the other hand, is a federal and state public assistance program that pays for health care services limited to eligible indigent individuals (e.g. disabled, elderly, etc.) with financial need. Unlike Medicare, qualifying for Medicaid is unrelated to work requirements.One of the many key differences between Medicare and Medicaid is this: while Medicare does not cover long-term nursing home care, Medicaid does. Since private, long-term care insurance does not cover all nursing home costs, having Medicaid coverage is beneficial. To be eligible for Medicaid coverage of nursing home care, there are citizenship, medical, and financial requirements.Estate Planning, Asset Protection and Nursing Home Care with Medicaid Eligibility ConsiderationWhile there are ways to protect your assets and qualify for Medicaid services, this is a specialized area of Elder Law practice and working with an Elder Law attorney who knows the laws around Medicaid eligibility is critical. At Stone Law our attorneys continually review changes made to the law so we can help you come up with a plan that meets your needs and fits within the legal requirements for Medicaid eligibility.Its never too late to do this type of planning. Even if a loved one is already in a nursing home planning can be done to save a portion of those assets from being spent on nursing home care. Typically at least half of the remaining assets can be protected, but in many cases even more can be saved. If someone tells you the only option is to spend down the assets they probably dont know enough about this area of the law. Call Stone Lawtoday and let us work with you to protect your assets and preserve them for your family.

Need Extra Funds in Retirement?

The HECM Reverse Mortgage Line of Credit is still relatively new and consumers should be interested!When you have a Line of Credit, you have money available to you to use but you only accrue interest on the money you withdraw. This means the line of credit can act as an excellent back up source of funds or can be used for retirement.This line of credit has other perks too. Not only are you not paying interest or monthly loan payments, but your untouched line of credit will grow in value. And with home values at record highs, you are guaranteed to lock in the value of your home now, even if the value was to fall later.The normal Reverse Mortgage qualification requirements still apply: age 62 or over, loan based on primary residence which meet HUDs guidelines, and borrower must have the financial capability to continue to pay homeowners insurance, property taxes etc Editors Note: This article was submitted by Jan Jordan with Mutual of Omaha, Reverse Mortgage, NMLS 543249.

Losing Vision? What now! Here is the Insight Into Vision Loss.

Did you know that 1 in 4 families is impacted by vision loss? Whether it is a young child losing vision because of juvenile eye disease, a working aged adult who struggles with Diabetic eye disease, or an older loved one who has Age-Related Macular Degeneration, the outcome is the same. Vision is lost and they have to learn to adapt.According to the 2014 US Census, approximately 15% of Coloradoans are experiencing medical issues that leads to low vision, including diabetes. Low Vision is defined as the loss of vision that cannot be corrected through the use of prescription lenses and cannot be fixed through medical interventions. A person with low vision may find it difficult or impossible to accomplish activities such as reading, writing, shopping, watching television, driving a car or recognizing faces. This is where adaptation becomes a necessity. Because many people who are currently living with vision loss are over 60, (1 in 6 people over the age of 60) adaption maybe very difficult. The team at the Ensight Skills Center for visual rehabilitation urge Coloradoans to reach out to find services that will help walk them through the difficult transition. A skilled team of professionals, like the team at Ensight, can facilitate skills training, modifications to activities, and introduce devices that can help to manage tasks. For more information visit www.ensightskills.org"Learning about a diagnosis and how to adapt is the most positive step a person can take. Taking the fear out of vision loss through education helps our clients get back to activities they both love to do, and need to do." says Ensight's CEO, Denny Moyer. "Often, when clients lose vision, they have no idea that they can continue to do most of the same activities, just differently. None of what we do is rocket science" says Moyer, "It's things that you may not have thought about."Editors note:This article was submitted by Ensight Skills Center for Visual Rehabilitation, a nationally accredited, non-profit organization.
