Can Medicaid help your aging parent?
There is so much confusion about Medicaid. Some get it mixed up with Medicare. Some think you have to be flat broke to qualify. Some think it will put you in “dumps”. Some think it’s not worth the hassle. But Medicaid is a program that entitles many Americans to benefits they aren’t claiming. Benefits that can help the caregiving process.
Kim and Mike Barnes of Parenting Aging Parents talk to Keith Leuty and VeeCee Spear of the law firm Barnett & Leuty, PC, a Partnering Sponsor of PAP.
They clear up some confusion about what Medicaid really is, how it can help, the three boxes you need to check to qualify and some misconceptions about income and the 5-year look back.
