This New Book Shows You How

Aging, disability, or chronic illness often create the need for long-term care that can lead to a family’s financial ruin. Nursing home expenses—which now average nearly $100,000 per year—have the potential to bankrupt all but the most affluent families. If you are facing the reality of an elderly parent or family member heading toward a nursing home and seeking qualification for Medicaid without first spending down his or her life savings or paying the nursing home out of your own pocket, this book will be a lifesaver.

Will You Go Broke Paying for Nursing Home Care?

Until now, very little information about Medicaid has been available to the general public. Most people don’t realize that the government will pay the nursing home bill only if you are essentially broke. Medicare will cover you for a maximum of 100 days, if at all -- and Social Security won’t cover these bills either. Only Medicaid could cover you—and it will pay the entire cost of a long-term stay in a nursing home—if you know how to qualify.

Medicaid Secrets: The Ultimate Resource for Georgia Families

Our book, Medicaid Secrets, includes the most up-to-date information about Medicaid in Georgia and VA Benefits. It outlines planning options that will enable families to steer clear of the traps and mistakes that can jeopardize a family’s financial security.
