The Government and Long-Term Care
Many think that government programs such as Medicare and Medicaid will pay for all of their future long-term care needs. Surprisingly, they may only pay for some of these services and have many restrictions.
Medicare: May cover a maximum of 100 days of services after a hospital stay. Coverage is designed to assist people during a short-term recovery and doesn’t include personal care or supervision services.
Medicaid: If you have limited assets and income and are relying on Medicaid, the state may make key care decisions on your behalf, including where you receive the care you need.
