Financial Transition From An Assisted Living Community To A Skilled Nursing Facility

This morning I attended a seminar at the Sunrise Assisted Living center in Madison NJ.

The topic was regarding the financial transition of a resident from an Assisted Living community (AL) to a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF).

The presenter was Laurie Hauptman, ESQ.

Laurie is a friend of Regency and has worked with me (and did a marvelous job) on a Medicaid application for one of our residents at Regency Park in Hazlet, NJ.

The discussion revolved around the nuances of how to "spend down" available and cumulative assets before one can achieve financial eligibility under the Medicaid guidelines in the State of NJ.

Laurie mentioned the potential pitfalls when residents divest themselves of all of their monies at the AL and then have no money to pay privately at the SNF, much less to invest with a lawyer to help secure Medicaid for them.

Worse yet, is when these residents run out of money before they become medically needy (under SNF classifications). Laurie, discussed this and commented,  "I can help you secure Medicaid financial eligibility, but I cannot magically ensure that you qualify under the 'medically needy' guidelines."

There was some further discussion about creative strategies and the "use it or lose it" phenomenon, especially as it relates to private insurances and the like.

Laurie ended the seminar by outlining the differences between Medicaid 'specialists' and Elder Attorneys and promoted the enhanced value in engaging with the latter in favor of the former.

I was very proud when she singled out Regency Nursing and Rehabilitation Centers for praise and was happy to accept her kind words on behalf of our organization.

I took a picture with Laurie after the seminar, as well as a few photos of the facility.
