Feds work to Combat Illegal Nursing Home Debt Collection [Video]

On September 8, 2022, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau released a joint letter with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, reminding nursing homes and debt collectors that debts arising from illegal contract terms cannot be collected. The Bureau released an accompanying report identifying certain illegal debt collection practices related to nursing home care. Their key takeaway: nursing homes cannot make a third party responsible for a resident’s bill as part of an admission contract.

Medicaid If You’re Married And Have Income [Video]

If you are a married couple, what happens to your income as a Medicaid applicant? Elder Law Attorney Jim Koewler joins Suzanne to answer this question. They must be married; some states recognize common law marriage, others not. The income of the well spouse does not get to be used under Medicaid rules to pay the expenses of the ill spouse. That doesn’t mean that a nursing home might not try. If the ill spouse has more income than the well spouse, things get complicated — the ill spouse may have to share some of their income to the well spouse to use. If the well spouse’s housing costs are greater than “average,” they may get to have more of the ill spouse’s income.Learn more about Jim at https://answersforelders.com/specialists/jim-koewler/, email him at jkoewler-afe@protectingseniors.com, or visit his website at http://www.protectingseniors.comLead image: courtesy of pexels marcus aurelius

Catastrophic Coverage Health Insurance Plans: What do they do? [Video]

Catastrophic Coverage Plans: What do they do?- Call us at iHealthBrokers today at 888-410-0344. Our services are 100% Free!★☆★ABOUT THIS VIDEO★☆★0:00 Intro0:56 Traditional Health Insurance1:36 Catastrophic Coverage Plans2:09 Marketplace3:31 Private Insurance4:30 Final ThoughtsCatastrophic health plans may sound scary but they can be a decent option both on and off the marketplace. Marketplace You can purchase catastrophic health insurance plans both on and off the marketplace. Eligibility depends upon a few factors. For marketplace plans, if catastrophic plans are available in your area you must usually be under 30. However, you can apply for a hardship exemption based on your financial circumstances. Catastrophic coverage are basically designed to protect you from “the worst”. For marketplace plans, the will cover some of your basic preventative services at no cost. They will also cover three primary care visits per year before you’ve met your deductible. Additionally, you will still have an OOP max to protect you from major medical bills. However, deductibles and copays can be quite high. These plans are really designed for the most basic of care and protection against the worst.They can be ideal for young healthy people, especially those who are ineligible for premium tax credits. Premiums for catastrophic plans are very inexpensive. However, if you are eligible for a premium tax credit, you will not be able to use that towards a catastrophic coverage plan. Based on the size of your premium tax credit, you may be better served with a more traditional marketplace plan.Private InsuranceCatastrophic coverage plans are available off the marketplace as well. Sometimes people refer to short term medical plans as catastrophic coverage. There can be significant overlap, but Short term medical plan can offer more benefits based on your needs. Private insurance plans are not beholden to the same rules as marketplace insurance plans. So you may be subject to medical underwriting.Remember, although premiums for catastrophic coverage plans can be quite low, if you need more regular or extensive medical care, you will have to pay a lot more out of pocket. However, for a younger, healthy person, they can be a great way to maintain coverage and have protections while keeping monthly costs at a low.
