Senator Liz Krueger’s 2022 Virtual Roundtable for Boomers and Seniors
“Aging in Place: Living Well in the Community”
Session V: “Medicaid Eligibility Rules: Strategies to Help You Access Long-Term Care and Protect Your Assets"
Thursday, March 10th from 10 am – 11:30 am
The majority of older people want to age in place, which is possible with the right support and planning. This multi-part roundtable series will bring together experts and thought leaders to help us understand some of the vital components needed to age well in the community.
The March 10th Roundtable presentation will focus on the importance of long-term care planning. Long-term care is extremely expensive, and there are many planning strategies available to improve access to health care and quality of life. The rules governing long-term care benefits can be confusing and difficult to navigate. This presentation will involve a discussion of Medicaid eligibility rules for home care and nursing home care, what it covers, and the planning strategies available to protect and preserve assets and income.
The March 10th Roundtable will feature Julia M. Greenberg, Associate Supervising Attorney, Health Law Practice, New York Legal Assistance Group (NYLAG). In addition to the Medicaid planning presentation, we will begin the session with a brief overview of the New Economy Project’s Financial Justice Hotline, which offers free legal advice regarding problems with your bank account, abusive debt collection, credit reports and credit scores, and more.
