Medicaid Planning Archives

Understanding the 'look back period' for Medicaid eligibility

As people get older, their future care needs become increasingly important to think about. How will they pay for care if they suffer a serious illness or injury? What will their quality of life look like if they live in a nursing home or assisted living facility?

Medicaid planning can help protect home ownership

People in Colorado, and the United States generally, are living longer and healthier lives. The longer a person lives the more likely it becomes that he or she will require some form of long-term care. Medicaid is a principal provider of coverage for long term care but financial eligibility must be met to receive care. This makes Medicaid planning imperative before the need for the care arises.

Could a Medicaid spend down help pay for assisted living?

Many people may think of nursing homes when they hear about an assisted living facility, but the two are not quite the same. Assisted living facilities are usually not equipped with the same level of medical care that is available in a nursing home, and instead focus on helping residents live independently. They sometimes offer different kinds of care depending on the needs of a resident, but a more advanced level of care also increases the cost.

A progressive disease diagnosis may jumpstart future planning

Some people may have led relatively healthy lives and still find themselves facing serious medical diagnoses. For some Colorado residents, the diagnosis could involve a progressive disease like ALS or another motor neuron disease that could severely impact their lives. Because such conditions get worse over time, a diagnosis may jumpstart planning for the future.

Can someone receive home health care through Medicaid?

One of the most important things to consider as a loved one ages is health care. There are a number of possibilities, depending in part on where someone lives and their preferences. But increasingly, older Americans are looking to remain in their home.

Options to consider in Medicaid planning

Long-term care is expensive. Yet, so many Colorado families find themselves caught between needing long-term care services and not knowing how they can afford them. Assistance is available, although without prior Medicaid planning, it may seem out of reach.

Medicaid can pay you as a family caregiver

When your aging parent has reached a point of needing routine care, the number of options can overwhelm you. Between assisted living facilities and nursing homes, it is easy to feel conflicted over the right decision for your parents. The good news is that Medicaid can make at-home care a more personal experience.
