A NURSING HOME CAN WIPE-OUT A LIFETIME OF SAVINGS ! 93% OF SENIORS OVER 65, DON’T HAVE NURSING HOME INSURANCE ! The Issues
Without Planning, Your Clients Could Lose Everything ! LOOK AT THE FACTS ! AVERAGE COST- $ –NURSING HOME 50% OF US WILL ENTER A NURSING HOME. 70% OF SINGLES WILL REACH POVERTY WITHIN 33 WEEKS. 7 0UT OF 10 COUPLES WILL HAVE ONE SPOUSE ENTER A NURSING HOME. A NEW CASE OF DEMENTIA ARISES EVERY 7 SECONDS. The planning that you do today…could determine if your children and grandchildren inherit anything from you. Asset Protection is possible. Advance Planning Can Protect Assets ! Let’s look at the New Medicaid Rules
Deficit Reduction Act for 2005 DIVESTMENTS AND GIFTS EXTENDING THE THREE YEAR TRANSFER RULE ON ASSETS TO A FIVE YEAR RULE. The Old Rule was from the date of transfer, the new rule is from the date of Medicaid Application.
Medicaid Eligibility Rules Some states may vary on these Medicaid eligibility rules Single person Assets - $ Life Policy - $ Car - $ Personal possessions Wedding rings Funeral trust Income - $ Spousal Impoverishment Rules for married couples Assets - $50,000 – 109, Life Policy - $ 1, Car – Unlimited Value Home - $ 500,000 Equity Personal Possessions Funeral Trust for both spouses Income - $ Monthly
SINCE ONLY $ IS EXEMPT FOR LIFE INSURANCE…THIS IS AN ISSUE Medicaid says only a $ life insurance policy is exempt. Any policy over that amount in cash values is a countable asset and would have to be spent down for Medicaid Eligibility. Example: $10, Policy – (Paid Up) 9, Cash Value SOLUTION: 1035 Exchange to Funeral Trust. (Tax Free) – Now it is Protected. Some states may vary on Medicaid Rules, please consult an Elder Law Attorney in your state.

(Client receives fair market value - No Five Year Look-Back Protected from Creditors, Lawyers, Hospitals, Nursing Homes and Medicaid. The last trust available without a look-back. Great Medicaid Planning Tool. The Financial Planner /Insurance Agent can now assist their clients with this pre-planning trust. Medicaid Rules may vary from state to state.
