Antelope Valley estate planning law firm Thompson Von Tungeln is offering a complimentary seminar on the Myths about Medi-Cal program and how those myths 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 Medi-Cal is akin to a chess games with draconian penalties if you make a mistake. That is why consumers need to be informed about Medi-Cal and have expert legal counsel guiding them through the process.”
The recent changes to Medi-Cal, the California Medicaid program, center 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, March 4, 2011 at the Hellenic Center in Lancaster – 43404 30th Street West (30th St West and Ave K-4) Lancaster, CA 93536. Registration is requested due to limited seating. To register for the complimentary seminar, call (661) 426-2499
