Preserving Senior’s Homes: Nuts & Bolts About Medi-Cal Recovery – Webinar
FCA presents a webinar on Medi-Cal benefits and protecting assets. Seniors sometimes hold back from claiming Medi-Cal coverage out of concern that, after they pass away, state collections might keep heirs from claiming the family home. Medi-Cal claims against estates are a real possibility but there are steps to take that may protect assets for a family’s next generation.
Myths and rumors in this area keep too many seniors from obtaining needed benefits. Learn more about eligibility for Medi-Cal benefits and what asset protection steps may be available.
Objectives for the Presentation:
1) Brief description about Medi-Cal services for seniors
2) To describe about movement in California towards Medi-Cal managed care
3) To provide knowledge about how to protect homes of seniors who use Medi-Cal services
