When we hear the word ‘crisis’, we think of disasters or calamities of epic proportions; which is where many people find themselves if they unexpectedly need to enter a nursing home or health care facility. Often times, those who enter a nursing homes pay out of pocket. Many find themselves or a family member trying to stay above the water financially whilst dealing with the outrageous costs of senior care – especially when care facilities are involved.
Accordingly, ‘crisis planning’ in this context is planning for those who have an imminent need for Medicaid eligibility. In order to receive Medicaid, a patient and (if married) the patient’s spouse must first ‘spend down’ their countable assets.
