Antelope Valley estate planning law firm Thompson Von Tungeln is offering a November 12 seminar on the upcoming changes to Medi-Cal and how those changes will affect your long-term care planning.
Lancaster, CA (PRWEB) November 6, 2009 — Antelope Valley estate planning law firm Thompson Von Tungeln is offering a complimentary seminar on the changes to the Medi-Cal program and how those changes can affect long-term care planning.
“Long-term care planning is an intricate process,” said Kevin Von Tungeln, partner at Thompson Von Tungeln. “Compliance with the changes to Medi-Cal is akin to a chess games with draconian penalties if you make a mistake. That is why consumers need to be informed of the changes and have expert legal counsel guiding them through the process.”
The changes to Medi-Cal, the California Medicaid program, are centered on the ability to give away assets such as a home or financial instruments, and changes regarding annuities. Many individuals have established planning strategies to give away assets that will need adjusting.
“Anyone living today has a greater than 50 percent chance of needing long-term care when he or she reaches age 65,” said Von Tungeln. “At least 70 percent of persons over 65 will require long-term care at some point in their lives. Being knowledgeable about the new rules and planning accordingly can save you, your spouse and your heirs a great deal of trouble in the future.”
The seminar is on Thursday, November 12 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Palmdale. Registration is requested due to limited seating. To register for the complimentary seminar, call (661) 426-2499.
