About Life Planning And Medicaid In Massachusetts

Life planning encompasses many aspects of one’s life as one moves into the “2nd half” of their lifetime. Much of the focus ends up being financial and healthcare-related. It includes Medicaid eligibility and planning, Alzheimer’s / dementia, in-home care, nursing or assisted living homes, and other long-term care. For business owners, it typically includes a plan for whether the business will be passed onto the next generation or sold. Those with significant assets can plan to avoid or minimize estate taxes while protecting their assets through the right trust(s).
Medicaid offers more comprehensive long‐term care coverage than the Medicare program, and because long‐term care costs are so high, many middle-class seniors rely on Medicaid to pay for their care. A common misconception about Medicaid is that you have to impoverish yourself and your family entirely before you can qualify for long‐term care coverage. This is simply not true.

When Should You Plan

There are two categories for Medicaid Planning. They are crisis planning and pre‐need planning.

Crisis Planning

This is for people facing an imminent need for long‐term care of some kind, whether it be Alzheimer’s, nursing home, or other care. Because of the intensive nature of legal work involved, this type of planning tends to be more expensive than pre‐need planning.

Pre-Need Medicaid Planning

The best way to plan for long‐term care is to do so well before the need arises. By beginning early enough, it allows you to take advantage of the five-year look‐back period, among other benefits.
