The idea of needing Medicaid long-term care assistance may not have crossed your mind, but there are cases where it may prove essential to your wellbeing:
1. A major accident or physical disease (e.g., Parkinson's) causes you to need extended long-term care that would quickly gobble up your annual income and wipe out your savings (or what you hoped to pass on to your children).
2. Your spouse needs additional long-term care that you cannot afford without falling into poverty yourself.
3. Your long-term care insurance runs out and you cannot pay for continued care.
4. You (or your spouse) may be forced into a Nursing Home if you can't personally pay for long-term care in your home.

Even if you may not need it now, it is wise to learn about situations where Medicaid Maryland could help you or someone you know in the future, and even wiser to learn where the pitfalls exist in the program and how to navigate them.

Mary Jo Broussard Speier, Esq., Elder Care Law Specialist has practiced elder law for many years in Maryland and will discuss how to avoid the minefields in Maryland's Medicaid program.
