With an aging population, we at Meurer Law Offices in Denver have more clients who inquire about nursing home planning and Medicaid. The rules surrounding long-term care and Medicaid can be quite complicated. Here is a general overview you are looking into long-term care for someone who will need Medicaid.
What is Long-Term Care?
Both assisted living services and nursing homes are types of long-term care. Long-term care includes both personal services and medical services, particularly for people with illness(es) or disabilities. For example, a nursing home resident may pay for medical services as well as pay for help with bathing and dressing. Medicaid rules differ from other services when it comes to long-term care, so it is important to understand when nursing home planning.
