Event Details

Presenter: Kathryn Casey, JD, CELA, Partner and Certified Elder Law Attorney

When you are diagnosed with a chronic medical condition, not only do you need to prepare medically, you need to prepare legally. Besides having the proper estate planning documents, you need to know what legal options are available in planning and paying for long-term care. That Medicare will pay for it all is a myth. This session will focus on the limitations of Medicare and how Medicaid, long-term care insurance, and personal care contracts can be used to maximize a person’s quality of life.

A fee of $10.00, payable to Elderwerks Educational Services, is required. Please email events@elderwerks.com or call 847-462-0885 by September 13, 2019.
