Do any of the following describe your situation?:
- Your spouse is in, or about to enter, a nursing home or other expensive long-term care.
- Your spending $4,000, $6,000, $8,000 or more per month on care.
- You still have savings or other assets that ought to be used for your own support or benefit...not go to the nursing home.
- You want to establish Medicaid eligibility for your spouse as quickly as possible.
And does any of this sound familiar?
- The "nice" lady at the Medicaid office tells you that under the new rules half or more of your money MUST be spent on care...you can't protect all your assets.
- Your regular attorney tells you the new DRA (Deficit Reduction Act) Medicaid rule changes make it impossible to protect all your assets.
- The big "Medicaid Specialist" attorney wants $5,000, $10,000 or more just to explain what you should do.
- Everyone tells you that if you give anything away you have to wait at least 5 years before you can get on Medicaid.
- Your friends and relatives have so many different opinions about Medicaid eligibility that you don't know what to believe.
With so much information (or should we say "misinformation") out there, you can become paralyzed...and very frustrated.
But did you know that you can easily learn how (using approved Federal and State MEDICAID eligibility rules) to qualify your spouse for nursing home or other long-term care MEDICAID - quickly!
In fact, we have identified at least 17 different easy-to-understand strategies designed to get a patient qualified for Medicaid while protecting your assets for you and your family.
And most of these strategies are ones you can quickly implement yourself, without having to pay thousands of dollars to an attorney or other professional.
Anyone can do it - you just need to learn how!.
The Financial Aid Center For Long Term Care has helped Thousands save $Millions$!!!, and we can quickly teach you how to legally protect assets from Medicaid for you and your family, even if your spouse is already in a nursing home.
We realize that you don't know us yet, but we have been helping families deal with Medicaid qualification, eligibility and the protection of assets since 1995.
We understand the difficulties families have dealing with the details of Medicaid nursing home eligibility (including other forms of long-term care) and the protection of assets. But these difficulties arise because you are working from a position of ignorance and fear. Your local Medicaid office is not going to educate you on the subject, but we will. It's not that complicated.
We have seen families waste tens of thousands of dollars, even hundreds of thousands of dollars, and we honestly hate to think of you wasting one more day (at up to $400 or more per day), needlessly throwing money away, only to later discover that all you lacked was the Medicaid knowledge necessary to save it.
That's why we created the Medicaid Married Solutions Manual ... to show you how to get your spouse quickly qualified for Medicaid, while protecting assets.
Protecting assets while qualifying for Medicaid is not that complicated - once you understand how the Medicaid laws and rules really work. All you really lack is the education, and that is exactly what the Medicaid Married Solutions Manual provides.
This easy-to-understand Medicaid information is what you've been looking for.
How do we know? Because we've personally helped countless families qualify for Medicaid while saving millions of dollars - people just like you.
To demonstrate how effective the Medicaid Married Solutions Manual can be, let's look at a typical Medicaid scenario.
We'll call our hypothetical couple the Johnsons.
Although actual situations vary widely, we'll assume that Mrs. Johnson is 79 years old and has been placed in a nursing facility, which is expected to be a permanent situation. The Johnson's financial situation is fairly typical. They own their own home (no mortgage), a 3-year-old car, and the normal assortment of household and personal property.
Between their bank accounts, CDs and a small annuity, they have about $150,000 when Mrs. Johnson goes into the nursing home.
Their combined income (Social Security, pension, etc.) of $2,500 doesn't come close to covering the $7,500 per month bill at the nursing home, let alone leave any money for Mr. Johnson to live on. In fact, their assets are going backwards at the rate of about $6,000 per month.
Mr. Johnson and his son talk with their attorney, the local Medicaid office, anyone else they can think of.
Everyone tells them the same thing.
Their only choice is to continue to spend their money on the nursing home until they have "spent down" to about $75,000, and then Mrs. Johnson will be able to go on Medicaid.
Everybody realizes that won't take long.
And, like most folks in this situation, Mr. Johnson is absolutely distraught over the thought of losing half their life's savings to a nursing home.
By the time their son hears about us, their savings have shrunk to about $125,000.
But, within a few hours of receiving the Medicaid Married Solutions Manual, they have selected 4 of the 17 strategies to implement. Within a week Mrs. Johnson is qualified for Medicaid. The Johnson's financial bleeding has been stopped.
And this in spite of the fact that any number of people had told them there was nothing they could do, but spend, spend, spend.
In fact, Mrs. Johnson is today still in the same facility, on Medicaid, and still receiving exactly the same care.
She's even still in the same room. And the monthly cost has been reduced from $7,500 to just over $800.
And as Mr. Johnson says, the only thing better would have been if they had found us $25,000 sooner.
And that's just one example among many.
In our Medicaid Married Solutions Manual we'll show you how to accomplish a similar outcome for your own family.
