Event Details

This program is open to consumers and professionals.


When you are diagnosed with a chronic medical condition, not only do you need to prepare medically, you need to prepare legally. Besides having the proper estate planning documents, you need to know what legal options are available in planning and paying for long-term care. That Medicare will pay for it all is a myth. This session will focus on the limitations of Medicare and how Medicaid, long-term care insurance, and personal care contracts can be used to maximize a person's quality of life.


TWO Dates to Choose From!

May 12, 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM & May 14, 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM


Following registration and prior to the meeting you will receive phone numbers, a link and meeting ID to access the Zoom webinar
