Nursing Home Care Costs!

Estate Planning Basics
What if you or your spouse 
had to enter a nursing home?

You could lose a big chunk of savings paying for nursing home care . . .

. . . Unless you have done some planning.


Perfectly legal strategies could protect your assets.

Case # 1:  Donald Bloss and his wife, Mary Ann, figured they were all set for their golden years. Although they did not own a home, he had sufficient cash in the bank, several CDs and a host of blue chip stocks. He and his wife, both having worked all their lives, were drawing decent Social Security, and Medicare took care of nearly all medical bills. What he hadn't figured, however, ruined their well-laid plans. Mary Ann after a debilitating stroke had to enter a nursing home. But this time, Medicare was of no help at all and Medicaid asked them to exhaust their savings - well, nearly all of them - before it would consider them for nursing home assistance.

    Don and Mary Ann didn't know that they could have protected their life savings, perfectly legally, only by slightly rearranging their finances and assets. They simply , got blindsided by some complex rules written by our folks in Washington, D.C.

Case # 2:  Hilda Sawyer had gone even a step further in her planning. She knew, through her friends' experiences, how expensive nursing home care could become. So she had bought a long-term insurance policy from a well-known company expecting it to pay nursing home bills, if ever the need arose. Well, it did but the insurance company would not pay, citing an obscure loophole in the policy. This came as a total shock, and all her planning was for nothing.

Case # 3:  John St. Clair's story, however, ended differently. He knew about Medi- care, Part A and Part B, for which he had signed up as soon as he had become eligible. He knew that Medicare was not panacea for all his needs. Sure, there are gaps in coverage for doctors and medical supplies, inpatient hospitalization and home health nursing. But that's exactly why he had purchased a Medigap policy, choosing carefully one of the ten state-approved plans.

    He even had looked into various nursing homes because there existed a real possibility that his wife may have to be put up in a nursing home, as she was showing early signs of Alzheimer's disease. He had carefully investigated various long- term care insurance plans, and after checking with the state insurance commissioner purchased a policy that made sense. But above all, he had arranged his finances so that his wife would become eligible for nursing home assistance almost immediately. He knew what were 'countable' assets and which were 'exempt' assets; he knew the latest twists and Turns in the Medicaid rules. He didn't go to some high-priced attorney for this, for he didn't have the kind of money the attorney wanted. He had all the, help he needed; all he wanted to do was protect his nest egg that they had built up just for those years when everything has to be budgeted. He wanted to be sure that his wife was being well cared for in a nursing home and that he had enough money left to take care of himself at home.

   There's nothing far-fetched about these cases. These scenarios are being played out in thousands of homes all across America as the elder citizens grapple with the awesome burden of medical care, just when they need it the most and seem the least capable of getting it.

    America is getting older. The group over age 85 is now the fastest-growing segment of the population. The golden years, however, are not without their problems. Forty-three percent of those who turned age 65 in 2004 will enter a nursing home at some time during their life. Since women generally outlive men by several years, they face a 50 percent greater likelihood than men of entering a home after age 65.

Nursing Home Costs Can Wipe You Out.  How much does a nursing home cost? Plenty. As a national average, a year in a nursing home now costs $70,080, and in some places as much as $204,765.

    Who pays for your nursing home stay? In nearly half the cases, the answer is you. It is not uncommon for a person who is forced to enter a nursing home to spend their entire life savings on nursing home care within the span of only a few months. Half of all couples with one spouse in a nursing home lose their life savings within only one year. It is tragic to see these people work hard all through the years, building a nest egg for their golden years, only to have everything taken away by a nursing home. There is absolutely nothing left to show for their years of earnest labor.

   Many people are under the mistaken notion that Medicare would step in and pick up their nursing home bills. They'll be shocked to find out that Medicare pays only about 2 percent of nursing home bills with individuals picking up nearly half the tab.

    Medicaid would come to the rescue if you're at least 65, blind or disabled and meet certain income and asset limitations. And therein lies the rub. In most cases, you'll be required to turn over most of your life savings to the nursing home before Medicaid will pay a cent.

    But this need not be so. Medicaid rules are fairly complex, but if you know them and arrange your finances accordingly, you might be able to keep your nest egg and still qualify for nursing home assistance.

   Protect your Assets from the Catastrophic Costs of Nursing Home Care does just what the title suggests.

  • Federal Spousal Impoverishment Act - how the spouse at home can protect his assets while the other spouse is in a nursing home.
  • What is the best time to obtain a resources assessment?
  • How you can transfer assets without being penalized. Beware of the 1993 tax law change which has sprang another trap for the unwary.
  • Medicaid trusts - are they what they are touted to be? Again, watch out for the restrictions imposed by the new law.
  • What are permissible transfers?
  • Cornerstone of your strategy: Convert non-exempt assets into exempt assets.
  • Four strategies to maximize the exempt value of your home.
  • Transferring assets to your spouse after entering a nursing home.
  • Little-known, but highly effective, strategy: Buy an annuity.
  • Four additional strategies to protect your assets recommended by experts.

    You see, there's nothing illegal or immoral about arranging your financial affairs in a way as to maximize your benefits allowed under the law. In fact, this is fully sanctioned by the law. The trick is doing the right thing at the right time.

This highly-acclaimed book gives you all the ins and outs. You'll know exactly what to do. 

Few attorneys know enough about this subject to advise their clients, and many would charge you a bundle for what little they'll tell you.

.
Bonus: Medicare, Insurance, Living Will, DPA.  This book isn't only about protecting your assets from nursing home care. In this book we also tell you all about Medicare, knowing your benefits and rights, and also knowing the vital gaps in the coverage. Is Medigap insurance for you? How to choose the right plan?

   Long term care insurance - is it for you? How to tell a good policy from one riddled with loopholes. Factors to evaluate while shopping for a long-term care policy. Also, a checklist for selecting a nursing home. Your rights as a resident.

 We go one step further and give you two basic tools - most critical in your nursing home, old-age planning but little understood and less-frequently employed: living will and durable power of attorney.

  Unless you have armed yourself with this vital information, it's quite possible that your life's savings, what you had worked so hard for, would go to pay nursing home bills, leaving you and your spouse destitute.

P.S.  Let me share something about this book. We publish several legal, financial and tax books, and I can easily say that this Nursing Home Care book is one of the most popular books. Maybe because it's a subject so close to everyone's heart, maybe because it answers many concerns about security and well-being when we're at our most vulnerable point in life. I urge you to decide this for yourself.
