Republican Senators Prep for Leadership Positions

"Which committees, will you be the senior Republican on? Will it be on a Homeland Security? Would be the one that would be most senior on this one. We're still waiting senator Rand Paul has seniority over me by a couple of years and that committee. He also has seniority in the community with health education, labor and pension. So he has the opportunity to be able to pick which one of those he wants to be ranking member. He gets the first selection. If he chooses the health committee health education labor inventions, I'll be the senior member in Homeland Security. So we'll wait and have his final selection there. But we move up the die as quite a bit in the finance committee dealing with tax portrayed with all things Medicare Medicaid and trying to be able to resolve the long-term issues there to make those structurally sound. So there are several committees that I'll say very engaged with. You

Phil Kerpen: The Harm Created by COVID Vaccine Mandates

"I think that the original vaccines were pretty good for the virus at the time A lot of people want to attack Trump and say you know the vaccine is that he claims credit for it actually was a terrible thing I mean I think the vaccine when it came out worked really well for the virus that we had at that time The virus changed The vaccine protection didn't last as long as we thought it would And it took them forever to update the thing And by the time they updated they didn't have time to do any testing And so they've made a total mess of it in my opinion And I think that the other thing that's changed in is almost everyone's had the virus now So it's just not the same kind of urgent situation where you need to cut corners or rush things through and you could go through a full process now would be we're really not in an emergency even though they keep renewing the emergency and then the other thing that's a real national embarrassment global embarrassment is we're like one of the last countries in the world that still has a vaccine mandate for international travelers It's us China North Korea Pakistan Indonesia Philips and Libya Seriously that's like the entire list other than like a few random islands We're discharging people from the military if they don't want the vaccine and we've still got vaccine mandates for federal employees Almost crazy stuff vaccine mandates if you want to work in head star vaccine mandates if you want to work in any healthcare setting in the United States basically that gets Medicare and Medicaid dollars And everyone admits that the vaccines don't stop transmission So what are we doing What are we doing that these mandates are still in

Yes, my kid, when he got a sticker every time we would fly on the plane, you know, he was automatically he was not officially a pilot, obviously. He had to work his way up and he was an honorary flight attendant at first. That's what you call a kid who runs up and down the aisles, asking people if they're hungry. That said, the thing that stood out to me was when they were talking about healthcare is a right and they had that conversation about it. And walker's response was, I want people to have the healthcare that Warnock has. Right. Warnock has government healthcare. What are you talking about? No, he actually said, I want you to get off government healthcare and get on the kind of healthcare Rafael Warnock house. Right here. Oh dear. Yeah, that is.

Dazed and Confused: Joe Biden Ignores Reality

"Whole clip from Scott pelley's interview on CBS News 60 minutes from Sunday Night. Mister president first Detroit Auto Show in three years. Yeah. Is the pandemic over? A pandemic is over. We still have a problem with COVID. We're still doing a lot of work on it. But the pandemic is over. If you notice, no one's wearing masks. Everybody seems to be in pretty good shape. So if everyone is in really good shape, then why are we spending so much on so many different welfare programs? There's a ton of money that got put into action back in March of 2020. And we're still feeling the effects of all that. I realized the president thinks inflation's up just an inch. Inflation rate month to month is just an inch hardly at all. You're not arguing that 8.3 is good news. No, I'm not saying it's good news, but it was 8.2 or 8.2 before. Actually, it's up over a percent from this time last year. As I predicted, by the way, it would, I said it over and over again right here on this show as far back as summer of 2020 that you couldn't have. This much fiscal and monetary policy working together and not run certain risks. Anyway, you have welfare benefits that have skyrocketed. Think about the millions of people that are still receiving food stamps because they expanded that program pretty dramatically. That was the national emergency, remember? You had a restriction or a lack of restriction, I should say, on state requirements for work, which meant more people were able to file for more benefits. States were not able to remove people, for example, from Medicaid roles, even if the people were no longer eligible for Medicaid, the prediction is that it's costing taxpayers according to a report in The Wall Street Journal about $16 billion a month.

Jim Hanson and Corey DeAngelis Discuss Carson v. Makin

"Corey D'angelo is with the association or the American federation for children. And he has been just a leader in the fight for school choice. And we got two wins. First, the Supreme Court decision I forgot, and then also the Arizona decision to have the entire state be run with the money following the children. Congratulations, because you were a part of both those. Maybe not the Supreme Court case as much. But tell us the implications of the scotus decision first. Yeah, totally. This is the Carson V Macon case coming out of Maine. It was a 6 three decision in favor of parental rights and education. And the basic takeaway is if you're gonna have a school choice program, you can't discriminate against religious families and religious schools by excluding them. That's what was happening in Maine. And it pretty much reaffirmed what we already found in the Espinosa V Montana decision in 2020, which was a 5 four decision on the part of parents. And it also reaffirmed that school choice has no issue with the separation of church and state, which is not itself in the constitution. For the same reasons that pell grants don't violate the establishment clause with the pell grant for low income kids, you can take the money, you can go to a public or private university, a religious or non religious university, and you have a choice in the matter. Same thing with pre-K programs, same thing with Medicaid. You can take your Medicaid dollars to a private religious hospital if you want. And there's no separation of church and state issue because the primary beneficiary that funding is the individual student and their families and they can pick among religious and non religious

Big Government Destroys Traditional Families

"This country is not headed in the right direction. A generation, as Terrence wrote, will soon be coming of age in which a large percentage of the population will have been denied a traditional family life. What happens when families fall apart or fail to form in the first place? Government happens. Government gets bigger and takes more control over people's lives. That's what? In 1941, Medicaid, a form of welfare did not exist. Authorized in 1965 alongside Medicare, the Medicaid act says this is title 19 of the social security act says, all states D.C. in U.S. territories and so on and so on, have Medicaid programs designed to provide health coverage for low income people, which is certainly understandable and fine. But what does that mean? By July of 2021, according to the centers for Medicare and Medicaid services, there were 76.7 million people enrolled in Medicaid. Last fiscal year, according to month to the monthly treasury statement, the federal government spent $520 billion on that program. When it was created

Briahna Gray: There's a Way to Talk About Race That Is Superficial

"But let me ask you a question, do you think the hyper focus of race in our national conversation detracts from having that kind of class based discussion? Sometimes. I think that there is a way to talk about race that is painfully superficial, and which focuses on the grievances of frankly elite minorities, more than the issues. I'm just curious. So for example, during the campaign cycle, there was a real spurt of attention directed toward the issue of the maternal maternal health gap. So the maternal mortality gap in the country means that black babies have really high mortality rates that are comparable, frankly, to some much less developed countries. The third world, sure. And people were concerned about that. And the story got highlighted in some part because Serena Williams had a very high risk pregnancy and almost died. She was complaining about pain and the doctors were ignoring her. And she ended up having some kind of deep vein from gross blood clot basically. I'm not a doctor. She has some kind of blood clot that if she hadn't really been forceful about it and gotten it checked out and if she weren't as powerful and rich and privileged as she is, she probably would have died like many women in this country do disproportionately black women in this country do die. And it's a real problem, right? As a progressive, my focus is to say, whatever the biggest determinant of an unequal health treatment in this country, a big one is that we have a two tiered system and people who are on our poverty program Medicaid tend to not be seen by high quality doctors. They tend to be ignored. They tend to move around a lot and not see the same physicians in a repeat basis. A lot of things that result in them having lower standards of care. And my solution would be to say, while I would love to sit here and give doctors diversity training and magically convince them and not be racist and pay more attention to Serena Williams or whatever. I don't really see that happening. And I don't really see that as the government's role, what we can do is make sure that everybody has a universal stained healthcare system so that doctors are disproportionately treating poor patients or stuff. But the thing about Serena Williams is to say, there are the kinds of issues that get talked about in mashable attention. Are those race issues that affect affluent black people? So in addition to everybody else, but affluent black

Vladimir Putin is evil. I agree. Something bad is happening here as well. Why are our priorities so upside down?

Well, listen, people need to know that the alliance defending freedom ADF. You guys are heroes, unfortunately, you're very important at this time in American history. We need folks like you. Fighting in the courts for the constitution. So we're great to we're grateful for what you all do and we're grateful for you in particular today for coming online because many people want to know what happened in the Supreme Court in the Supreme Court recently with the two rulings. So for people who really haven't followed the ruling specifically the one about the one that was struck down, I guess it was 6 to three. And then the one that was not struck down, tell us a little bit about those rulings. Sure. So back in September, President Biden announced that he was going to require the federal agencies to mandate vaccination. And his chief of staff even called this a workaround knowing that federal authority wasn't there to implement these requirements. And so the agencies, the federal agencies, began going one by one and requiring vaccination in areas that they could control. And the occupational safety and health administration, which is part of the Department of Labor, issued a requirement back in November that all private employers with 100 or more employees require those employees to be vaccinated or if they chose not to get vaccinated. They had to be tested every single week and they had a mask up if they were unvaccinated. So they sweeping mandate covering over 80 million American employees. Simultaneously, the center for Medicaid and Medicare services CMS issued a mandate requiring healthcare workers at 15 different types of facilities that receive either Medicare or Medicaid funds to be vaccinated with only very narrow exemptions. So that covered over 10 million workers. So right there, you have almost a 100 million Americans covered by federal mandates. And those were the two mandates that the Supreme Court took up at Earl argument on January 7th and issued decisions last week. The osha mandate, the one that covered the private employees, the 80 plus million private employees was struck down like you said 6 to three. And the Medicare and Medicaid mandate that covered healthcare workers was upheld by a 5 to four

"Insurance and they also should be able to tell you. This is how much it will cost you when you go even if you don't have insurance they're actually a lot of opportunities and most counselors keep up portion of their case load for either lower income populations or just people who are currently not able to pay and so they'll negotiate with you you know sometimes it's a sliding fee scale. Sometimes it's just a lower rate. Most counselors will work with you. Now i will tell you most counselors. I know right now are very very full and so it's hard to get in and so when you call. You may not find anybody the first few people that you that you call. They may say. I'm sorry i'm full. Or i hope they call you back but even if they don't call you back please keep trying because there are people who are available like we keep a couple of interns here that work for lower rates which is really great. Because even if you can't afford someone who's fully licensed you can get a you know an intern. That's still got some supervision. They have great skill or they wouldn't be working here. They can definitely help you out for a cheaper rate. So that that's what i would suggest is like first of all you should be willing to pay second of all if you can't pay remember you've got insurance and people will work with you. Don't let that be a barrier for healing. Does medicare medicaid cover behavioral hill. They do a lot of the smaller practices. Don't aren't credentialed with medicaid medicare. We are not but the bigger agencies are like aren't guidance so if you can connect with them they they usually have room in their case. Load in can take you on. And that's usually free. If you have medicare medicaid usually can come for free gotcha so tell me this mean your job. You've got to be an astute listener. I mean is that assuming right so how did you help your active listening skills. And and how do you continue to hone those. Because that's actually something that i'm working on it and i'm not i have no desire to council anyway. I'm counseling myself. I'm a council practice of one. But i mean how how you how to develop that. I mean doing day in and day out you get a lot of practice. Do my job well. I won't have a job. So i have to pay attention in session but i would say for me personally. What what gives me the capacity to listen is spending enough time outside of session doing the things that care for my own heart so whether that's taking time off. I only work four days a week. Because i need. I need the break in the middle of the week to recover and to frankly clear my brain of all the things i've been thinking about and hearing and then i i my weekends i really dedicate to being with my family and having fun with them and and resting and playing you know those things are really crucial for me to have the capacity to listen and go deep and hard with people i have to be able to empty that out and some other time in some other way so that i can be calm and focused and of where and available so lucky you. You got me on a monday morning out that. Yeah that definitely makes sense. And i could totally see that. And you're still able to manage a decent case slow in four days Things i of have set a max for myself. Twenty clients a week so see five a day for four days and sometimes that various just a little bit but over having practiced for over ten years. I really have learned what i can do and what i can't do you know there have been times in my career. I would see like eight clients a day..

So that's you know that's been allowed time working collaboratively with With with our our our federal partners to make sure that at all. And then i think so long a long answer your other point though was how did this dynamic between medicaid enrollment in reimburses base and. I mean this is this. This is a challenge that has been funded medicaid for a long time right. You know he was created as an afterthought to medicare in nineteen sixty five. It is now bigger than medicare terms of total number people. Served old dollars medicaid could afford to. You know pay health care safety net prices when it was a small safety net program but as it rose and as you know as we edge up north of eighty five one in four americans It becomes increasingly difficult to sustain This the provision of chair At those rates and so ironically neeley saw this a little bit been with the medicaid expansion back in in twenty fourteen part of the aca You know when you when you expand medicaid coverage you generally have to increase rates as well to to to make up for the fact that any given providers book of business is now going to be larger in medicare larger share of medicaid. And you know we've been doing this kind of piecemeal. Little bits two steps forward to after decades And it's been slow enough that you know that you put the frog in the in the water and kind of slowly. Turn up the right right. We've never really hit that boiling point of only got the whole system's broken But i think it's a very very real question that is probably the subject of completely server. Podcasts bridges how big can or should medicate right now medicaid is like i said one in four americans it is covered near covering forty percent of all kids. We pay for fifty percent of the births.

"Medicare it's gonna happen in a uniform way across every state in this country and that's the way that you're really engrained itself as second nature in the dna of providers when they start to learn this stuff in med school. That's when we know megan so to me. It's it's this marriage between you know. Harnessing the innovation and the excitement and slowing on in medicaid translating that maybe you know and of narrowing it dumbing it down if you will for broad translate ability genetic care and that's how you get this because there's no. There's no question that Every state medicaid director and think everyone working In health policy general looks at what happens in a healthcare system. Where the financial incentives and the care delivery. Incentives are missile. If they're misaligned were never gonna make anything. We have got to bring them together. We got to stop paying for volume and start paying for value. And it's really really easy and simplistic to say that. It's extraordinarily hard to do it. Because again it's not just medicaid is not just medicare it's healthcare and healthcare is just about twenty percent of the nation's gdp and so we're talking about changing the dna of twenty percent of our judy. That's not a trivial tests. So that's that's really important and that's what we're building right. Not an easy left as they would say At four trillion dollars a year. Right on the gp. I wasn't gonna ask this question but it's it's sort of related or it is related or maybe the flip side here And that is there have been some discussion so most states. In fact you would know better. Maybe all states apply for an eleven fifteen waiver. Basically meaning they could customize serve medicaid benefit program to make best the particular or unique needs of their state medicaid beneficiaries But these waivers to be approved by the feds need to be budget neutral. Many change delivery provide different services or products but it has to be Comparatively budget neutral There is some discussion at the federal level about dropping the prerequisite of budget neutrality. Course how that would work. The one suggestion is while you you you do that. Bud if there's additional projected cost Who pay who's on the hook for that that gets debated of course immediately. But what's your take on a and this would be a substantial formative medicaid program this one technical change on accepting or rejecting eleven fifteen waivers. What's what's your sense of that That's a great question. I a couple of those one of which is interestingly enough. I don't know how much of a radical change. That might actually. And i say that because you know budget neutrality which is nowhere really stand out of a regulatory thing out for really have come out of a deep-seated distrust of states from the vote and the sense that well if you don't do this don't put some parameters stay just going to go and just spend federal dollars like drunken phase which okay But there's a lot of state dollars tunes insensitive..

"Providers as in the direction that the medicare program is whereby i'm providers. Don't get just a straight fee for service reimbursement part of the reimbursement Is is based on equality multiplier for lack of a better phrase. Yes i think a couple of things may what is that. We've got specific. Dance are at the federal level right now. For some of these conversations around aligning medicaid medicare and ideally other areas as. Well you know. Dan i the the new cis t s this federal medicaid director He was the massachusetts medicaid. Rep personally gets these things. Fundamental level and then liz fowler was the new head of the center for medicare and medicaid innovation extraordinarily thoughtful people who really get The next of the issues and the thing that really strikes me importance is. I've been doing state medicaid worked for twenty five years and i firmly believe with every inch of my of my soul that you know the work that's happening. Innovation is happening in state medicaid programs across the country is second to none in terms of thoughtfulness in terms of creativity and in terms of trying to keep a focus on just robbing a dysfunctional healthcare system by the lapels and shaking it. Until it out. But i will acknowledge that there is a to the to the extent to which medicaid and when i say medicaid fifty six individuals sake territorial There's a limit to which this industry sparking of innovation that can happen. Does happen in states is a limit to how much that translate into changing the dna of the healthcare system. And you know for any of this Any health reform to it has to be sustainable. And for entities sustainable. It's gotta be calm. Second nature to everyone involved. You know if it's always just a pilot demo this complicated saying we're doing there's no sustainability and quite frankly you know and i also this is not heretical.

"This is a pulse. And so i think that the fat you know to compared to the appreciation this is yes medicare could certainly spend four hundred billion dollars improving what we do. But don't the people in this country deserve a more of a first dollar coverage a more of a as you said less than a catastrophic and more a front end benefit and you know. I think our folks state medicaid directors. Pretty agnostic about. That looks like is that you know is it. Creating a medicare part. E not a maybe. Is it creating some kind of Cafeteria plan long term. Care insurance at as meaningful Navy or is it something. I it can be a lot of things but i think what we what we owe it to ourselves as a country is to say we should be thinking about. How do we provide people with the services that they clearly need without in poverty. I that's asking to be trickier one figure had. Yeah absolutely they They and their families. I will say not surprisingly to make certain there are weightless for To be recipient oklahoma cuny based service benefit In some states these are tens of thousands of people on these wait lists particularly texas. I know ohio amongst others. And i will say to one last point. Because of the long term care benefit is structured as a medicaid benefit really it constitutes segregated care and that points been made particularly context of biden administration's interested in health equity Racial equality And we we do know from The supreme court separate is not equal. And i'm sure everyone knows that court case. Let's move on so odd. Yeah act plays. I would like to add another another point on that you brought up the you know the guy or the inequities disparities angle on this. And i think that's a really important one. I just throw out one one aspect of this of this policy discussion. That i think is glossed over. So part and parcel of medicaid history of being you know obviously a low-income be tested program but also provided all of the lawn care is that there are provisions in place. You know things mistake. Recove- where individual or or a couple who you know utilize a lot of long term care services in that at no point. Does anyone you know.

"Did it about two months ago cuz you know things weren't looking good. And I you know first question I say is it a revocable and they don't even know what that is the funeral home doesn't even know what that is. So you said yep. Funeral funeral trust or you pay for a burial arrangements and a funeral home and it is not irrevocable has to be specifically irrevocable life and it is consent considered an asset and now you can be over resource because of that. So you want to make sure it's irrevocable. There's many ways to do that. You can either do it directly through your funeral home. Again. We have the resources where you're able to go ahead and sign up for like what's in a irrevocable and funeral insurance policy. So to say it's like a funeral trust you buy back into that and you can use it at any funeral home. So, you know, definitely again I say make sure it's a revocable and speak to professionals about that. So those are three points that I think just met many times. I've been I've been getting a lot of phone calls of people anxious or you know, they've been told one thing they're not sure so those are just three points that I definitely want to make known that exists out there. We made a good point. Iran don't Google. Yes. Yes. I've never done that. So I don't I'm sure it's like going into med MD right to do that or WebMD and I you know, the I've seen this question on the Facebook support pages and I'm going to read him closer now that I'm informed. Yeah, I can tell people save yourself the headaches just find and what is it the Medicaid Place planner planner. There we go Medicaid just yeah. I want to make sure I have the right right turn off and I'll tell I know a good one if you if you guys need a reference cuz I know a lot of those pages don't like promotion of any kind, right and its just oh my God so crazy and like I said earlier my first instinct was here's money you take care of it because I know how insane this kind of just just talking to you about it makes me yes, and it makes yep. Happy that we have our ducks in a row. Hopefully we're doing what my dad did so but maybe we should do the long-term care insurance too. Because you know, my grandmother's almost a hundred and three so it's oh wow. Yeah, you know, that's that's a many more year. What does that 49 more years for me? That's a long time. So that's probably the next thing we've talked about looking into that and I did do podcast episode on long-term care insurance, which I figured people would be like, oh boring not listening to that. That was very popular episode. So that's great. So this one will be to what else is there anything else like a an array assurances? What else? What else would you tell somebody? That's like me going. What I would say is is again, it's a lot of fear and anxiety that takes people over with you have the proper guidance and the proper support people will get to see that it's not as complicated as it's made out to be and it's and it's it's not it shouldn't be that complicated dead. So if you have the right guidance and the right support, everything will go smoothly essentially.

I'm like blatantly clueless and even really have good questions to ask i feel. Yeah no definitely. That's really good questions. I think you know the the. I'll talk a little bit about. Because i know i get calls a lot of asking about this about three things number one i to talk a little bit of a alluded to that. Before the income the qualified income trust also known as the miller trust so many states medicaid looks at your income so the income is usually around in those states. Your income usually can't be more than twenty three forty nine in some states. Twenty one ninety nine in other states so would say around the low two thousand mark if your income does exceed that you won't be eligible for medicaid unless you would set up what's called a qualified income trust also known as a miller trust and what that does is it takes your over resource money so money were you are. Your income is too high. You're over income. I should say limit is too high. Take some of that money and puts it into this qualified income trust which is a family member or friend someone has to be the beneficiary a bad and the money essentially sits there on it can be used for some things on every state again is a little bit different but it can be used like healthcare things can be used for money the over resource money sits there. There's so that's if you're over income so no again if you hear i get so many times. I won't be approved approach medicaid because i'm over income. It's as simple trust. That needs to be set up on the costs. All about five hundred dollars. You probably can find an attorney to do for. You can find a medicare plan planner. That can do it. We do either injured dollars.

"And the third thing I would say is you really want to educate and not gain weight, but you really want to find out if there was any gifting that was done. Even if it's just $100 200 don't be afraid but just know about it. So you want to find out about any gifting that was done and the way that you can if if you know, let's say your loved one who you're working on your power of attorney, but you don't know all that information. Then what you would want to do is get 6 months bank statements. They usually if you give six months bank statements, either you can look through it or give it to Medicaid plan or they usually at that point can find out what are notable assets that Medicaid will find out about or what are what is the name? The the other thing the one other thing that I did believe out which that you would want to find out as well as about taxes of taxes has been done or if there was any debt that's owed back. Yes. See all that. This is the creative part of me that says ich no hubby. You do all this stuff. Right? Exactly. My mom. He did do a lot of that just cuz it's it's his thing.

We submit all of the people were prior to them asking for it. We submit paperwork that we anticipate the masking form. We like to tie the paper a nice bill. We send it off to them and it's it's really spoon fed to them so they like it. It's you know it's pleasurable for them. They feel like the working with someone who is responsible. And who knows what they're doing and we definitely find that they're not very nitty gritty. I'm that often at all time often. They're not very nutty greedy. We don't typically get denials on what would happen is is that they come back in the ask for lots of information. But that's that's usually what happens to most people in and working like going through the nursing home. That's usually what's going to happen and a people you're not approved because we need all this information so you just have to start gathering all that information when we go on we gather all that information prior to the processes just smooth a make sense back in the day when my family and i had They one hour photo lab and portrait studio.

It was under the prop thirteen taxes, which people that are outside of California probably like, huh? They they basically kept the property taxes wage. Fifty years later for them what my parents paid in property taxes for the years what I was paying for the month my dad would complain and I'd be like a few months. I'm like, I can't I can't like you can't wrap my head around this complaint here buddy. Yeah, and so we rented out her home to a really nice family and that covered at least it covered about half of her expenses her social security was another 25% and then my dad's Investments the financial planner put in the other $1,500 a month to you know, so she had plenty of money which was lovely cuz then we didn't have to worry about running out of money at a time when she needed more and more care. So there was a question I had was first off you when you're talking about all this paperwork that you have to collect and gather. My mental image was here's money do that for me.

"That is very very likely yes. Besides the fact that we should all plan ahead knock on wood and have long term care insurance. Which could be pricing. When you start getting it in your you know your more advanced years which i think i'm getting there What other things should people know about medicaid and you know maybe if their loved one they can still keep them at home. But they're like yeah. I'm thinking down the road. What should they start. Maybe contemplating start doing so. But i remember i. Commend is the first thing that that would recommend is. Don't do too much google inc. Don't go on read it too much. Don't go on facebook pages on. There's a lot of false information in a lot of information. That will definitely provoking zion fair. So what i would say is what should be done immediately is really talked to a professional so either speak with a medical planner. You know sure you can find just from looking online on us. You know sensible senior planning we service across fifty states so can always reach out to us will get the information towards the end or you can speak with an elder law attorney. I will specify though that in speaking with an alert. Turney one of the things as you do have concerns about medicaid Your loved one or you needing that in the future make sure that the al gore attorney is knowledgeable with medicaid planning on so often you know individuals all the laura turni's and and it. It's great i worked very very closely with many turnings but there are many. That aren't familiar with medicaid. Planning so the advice that they're giving you can be wonderful but it may not be the advice that you're specifically looking for if you have your anticipating needing medicaid in the in the future you're not someone that has two three four million dollars so that's really what i would recommend. I know i've been asked a lot with the differences between a medical planner An attorney and i will you know. Make a clear again. I work very very closely with many attorneys or contract with some attorneys. What we do a little bit different though is that we have that You know the resources from a legal standpoint when meted we also have other resources so we have the health and life insurance. We have an individual who specialize in helping my life insurance so in that case we are able to do a new. Witty's i'm we are often when going legal and you're not really looking at that route. We do have an individual who is licensed to funeral homes in all fifty states as well so we have that route at all so we are able to take a very comprehensive look and our recommendations are you know comes from different angles and what suits each individual case. That's one thing. That's different than going to an alkaloid turning the other thing of course is pricing Our pricing comes nowhere near attorneys. They of course because of their background and their education The price is definitely significantly. Higher than willing to medicaid planner. I'm and that's another reason. Why another difference. I should say between a medicaid plan or in the makes sense. Because i've always heard while you should go to. A an elder elder law attorney. It's not so easy to say. And i wasn't super familiar with businesses like yours because.

Yes, there are many states actually more and more states are starting to pick up on that we're Medicaid or another government program similar to Medicaid pay for assisted living facilities. The big issue is is that the payout of Medicaid is significantly less than private pay so not many assist. Living facilities have accept Medicaid and a lot of assisted living facilities that do accept Medicaid. They only have maybe five or ten beds that are set aside for accepting Medicaid office in the waitlist can be really long. I think it's changed a little bit cuz a lot of people have pulled their loved ones out of those kind of communities and I'm assuming a private like my mom was at home a private corporate run Assisted Living Memory Care community and my first instinct cuz I'm Ms. Practical would be like, okay.

No, it doesn't because you yep, you can't be approved for Medicaid unless if you reach certain requirements, so Medicaid won't do that exactly home seems like that would be a good option. But I'm sure there's a hundred reasons why that's not the case besides that with my bankrupt the system. That's what I was going to say probably comes down to the dollars, you know comes down to the dog. Ours that is very very likely. So besides the fact that we should all plan ahead knock on wood and have long-term care insurance which can be pricey. When a start getting it in your you know, you're more advanced years, which I think I'm getting there what other things should people know about Medicaid and you know, maybe if they deserve love when they can still keep them at home, but they're like, yeah, I'm thinking down the road. What should they start maybe contemplating and start doing? So what I would recommend is the first thing that young I would recommend is don't do too much Googling don't go on Reddit too much don't go on Facebook pages..

"Fading memories today with my name is Sylvia green, and she is going to be talking to us about a topic that I know nothing about. This is a good one to chat about all things Medicaid and I told her I remember to call Medicaid and Medi-Cal, so thank you for coming on and filling this on in on everything. We need to know about Medicaid. Thank you Jennifer for having me on excited. So you have a company that deals specifically in Medicaid services. So you want to start there or I'm not even sure where's a good place to start definitely wage? Yeah. Yeah. So sensible senior planning. We are a Medicaid planning service and we assist individuals and seniors and their loved ones with the Medicaid planning process and the actual Medicaid application process. So as soon as heard the process can be quite challenging. Yes it is, you know, definitely a lot of documentation that's required a lot of money that's required so that you know, what documentation is required and you know what to do with assets what you can do what you should do. You know what your options are so dead it is it is a process that is very daunting, especially when you're not a professional at it or like dealing with people like I just I don't deal well with banks off. Service companies any of those regulated type things. It's just I don't know what it is. I have like a visceral reaction to minutes on hold and I'm just like losing my mind off that stuff up to my husband, which is much better. Yeah, so I know a lot of people get to a position where they're taking care of a parent and the parent needs to go into a care home for one reason or another and they have some assets but not a lot or I know for example, there's a gal in my support group who feels that her husband would benefit for a care home, but they can't afford it and she obviously would like to continue living in her home. So these are kind of I'm sure things that you deal with every single day. I don't know if that's a good place to start the conversation is Lee. Definitely so there is a big misconception that if you know for someone to get onto Medicaid Medicaid is going to take off. All of their money and that's not the case. The case is in order to be eligible for Medicaid. Of course the numbers that I'm going to throw out are different and every state but will say Most states need in order to be eligible for Medicaid your assets. So liquidated assets non-liquid assets, you know can't exceed $2,000. Now, there are exceptions in many states you a lot of own a one car and you're allowed to own a house if you're anticipating to return so that's you know, when everyone hears and you know again, it's it's well then Medicaid is going to take a lot of money..
