Who Pays for Long Term Care
The American public believes that ourÂ government will provide long term care in New JerseyÂ when needed. This misconceptionÂ prevents people living in New JerseyÂ from doing proper planningÂ for the future need for care. According to the National Care Planning Council, (www.longtermcarelink.net) many people think they can give away assets prior to the need for long term care and qualify for Medicaid.
Most New Jersey residentsÂ mayÂ use the system and allow Medicaid to cover care but at what cost? And why would youÂ want to spend yourÂ remaining years in a nursing home?Â As we know, itÂ is the preferred living arrangement for Medicaid. Why go through the expense and effort of trying to manipulate the system to get welfare care, when a little preplanning at an earlier age would be a better option?
