Long-Term Care Planning: ALTCS & Other Options
Finding and paying for long-term care are two major concerns for the elderly and those with disabilities. At Bivens & Associates, we understand that managing the expenses of long-term care is an important consideration, and we’ve helped numerous individuals and families find solutions.
A significant portion of our elder law practice involves rendering advice in such areas as long-term care insurance, Medicare, VA benefits and Medicaid (i.e., Arizona Long-Term Care System (ALTCS) benefits). Long-term care planning is the hallmark of elder law. It often comes as a surprise to families that Medicare does not pay for long-term care (e.g., non-medical home care, adult day care, assisted living, adult care home, memory care, or skilled nursing care beyond 100 days), the cost of which can easily exhaust your savings.
