Kim and Bayli Share Medicaid Secrets
We're excited to announce that Kim Kimbrough and Bayli Fields have co-authored a book that shows families how to protect family assets from devastating nursing home costs.
Medicaid Secrets costs $49 and is available from Kimbrough Law.
The new book addresses the sobering reality that aging, disability, or chronic illness often creates 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,” said Kim, founder of Athens and Gainesville-based Kimbrough Law and a local elder law authority who has helped hundreds of clients qualify for Medicaid and VA Pension (Aid & Attendance) benefits, and save thousands on nursing home costs. “If you are facing the reality of an elderly parent or family member heading toward a nursing home and you want to qualify 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.”
Bayli believes that the book meets a critical need for Georgia families. “Until now, there has been very little information about Medicaid available to the general public,” said Bayli, an attorney at Kimbrough Law and a Medicaid expert who has helped hundreds of clients develop comprehensive strategies to protect family assets and qualify for public benefits. “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 only a maximum of 100 days, if they cover you 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 includes the most up-to-date information about Medicaid and VA Benefits in Georgia. It outlines planning options that will enable families to steer clear of transfers and other mistakes that can jeopardize a family’s financial security.
Medicaid Secrets is available for $49 at Kimbrough Law’s Athens office at 1077 Baxter Street, Suite 700 and the firm’s Gainesville office at 500 Jesse Jewell Parkway, Suite 200. For more information, visit http://www.kimbroughlaw.net/medicaidsecrets. To reserve your copy, call 706.850.6910.
