Private pay insurance for nursing home care
Your regular health insurance policy likely does not cover permanent residence in a nursing home or an assisted living facility or access to home health-aide services. Finding sources of funding for this expensive care can be difficult unless you create a plan of action.
In addition to your rights to certain government benefits — including Medicaid and Medicare — we can help you establish private pay options to finance your medical care needs, such as:
- Long-term care insurance
- Healthcare savings accounts
- Reverse mortgages
Our tax lawyers discuss exemptions and advantages associated with private pay strategies, and our estate planning lawyers explain how best to protect yourself during your lifetime, while providing for your family after your death.
