Medicare Myths Debunked!

Medicare Myths Debunked!

A significant number of our clients approached us with the misconception that Medicare covers all their in-home care needs. Sadly, this isn't true. At most, Medicare pays for a service called Home Health, which is limited to approximately 60 days of maybe four to five hours a week. In addition, many clients come to us believing that Medicare will pay for their nursing home. Medicare doesn't pay for nursing home care, they only pay for rehabilitation, and even then, not 100%. The room and board at a nursing home is beyond the therapy days and as a private expense that can cost $150,000 a year. That is why it is worth chatting with a Medicaid asset protection lawyer about how to get Medicaid to pay for these expenses. If this sounds like something you need, reach out to us at Family First Firm today.
