"Planning and Paying for Long-Term Health Care...Sooner Rather than Later"
Planning for your own or your loved one's future can be confusing and overwhelming. There are various financial and legal considerations to take into account, and planning sooner rather than later can be an asset. However, even those with the best intentions in mind can run into roadblocks and face challenges along the way.
In this audio Webcast, attorney David Cutner, an experienced and compassionate advocate for the elderly and disabled, help you make sense of this important issue. He will outline the various options for financing long-term care expenses (such as home care or nursing homes), the limited role of Medicare (what it does and does not cover), the eligibility rules and criteria for Medicaid home care and nursing home care, and strategies to qualify for benefits. Additionally, Mr. Cutner will discuss how to protect income and assets, the need for wills and trusts in long-term care planning, and the role of the durable power of attorney and health care proxy.
David Cutner, Esq. has practiced law for more than 35 years and is a founding partner of Lamson & Cutner, P.C., a leading elder law firm in New York City. Mr. Cutner is the author of numerous published special reports and articles on elder law topics, a frequent public speaker at nursing homes, hospitals, senior centers and other organizations, and a regular guest on the "Health Talk" radio show on WMCA 570 AM in New York and on the Internet.
