SENIOR SIGNALS: Ethically protecting your family with Medicare planning

Newington Town Crier

Cover picture for the articleI was recently reviewing the State of Connecticut Department of Social Services website when I came upon an explanation of Medicaid for long-term care. The website described Medicaid as being a program for the “poor” or “near poor.” It further went on to note that Medicaid applications have a rigorous eligibility process to ensure that applicants are not attempting to gain benefits by “inappropriate” divesting of assets. I was struck how this language (wording) could discourage seniors from applying for benefits, who may otherwise be eligible for Medicaid.
