    Tuesday, November 20th- Long Term Care Planning and Transfer of Asset Rules for Title XIX (19)

    Time: 10:00am

    Title XIX (19) – Medicaid is designed to assist in paying for Skilled Nursing Facility expenses and many other medical expenses for individuals who have minimal assets and inadequate income to pay for these needs.

    Long term care planning is complicated, but there are many ways to transfer assets to your heirs and still be eligible for Title XIX if and when the time comes. The best thing you can do to provide for your own needs and still have a legacy is to plan ahead…which means it would be wise to start your planning now.

    Join us for this informative presentation which will discuss the transfer of asset rules for Title XIX (19), long term care planning and will explain what Title XIX (19) covers and who qualifies.
