Medicare Coverage and Long Term Care Planning

Long term care planning may start with a discussion of what Medicare covers when it comes to nursing home care.  Usually, Medicare pays for up to 100 days of skilled nursing home care which is restorative in nature and which follows a 3-day hospital stay to a Medicare-approved facility within 30 days of discharge from a hospital. 

Why Make a Long Term Care Plan with an Elder Law Attorney?

Long term care planning should be done with an elder law attorney since only an elder law attorney can give legal advice and best represent your interests.  Sometimes, a nursing home may recommend an organization or service to help you with such a Medicaid plan; but it is important to remember that such a group may be looking out for the interests of the nursing home, not your interests.
