PLANNING EXAMPLE: Medicaid Planning for Carol & Bob

Carol & Bob's Ages: 80, 84
Excess Assets: $250,000
Problem Assets: IRA, Savings
Total Income: $3,200
Cost of Care: $3,200/mo
Total Deficit: Deficit Symbol $5,300/mo

The Problem: Bob entered a long-term care facility 45 days ago, and Carol recently received a monthly bill for $8,500. She needs to find a way to reduce this cost, or she risks draining their entire nest egg.

The Solution: Carol works with an elder law attorney to spend down their assets properly using a Medicaid Compliant Annuity. Bob then applies for Medicaid benefits. This ensures Carol can maintain her livelihood at home and preserve a legacy for their children.
