GCS Family Confidence Solution: Plan ahead, starting today, to be prepared for a long-term care crisis.

The cost of long-term care has many families concerned about their financial future. Families often find themselves having to spend all of their life savings to pay for extended care for a loved one. Guidelines allow the state to take homes to recover Medicaid expenditures. Medicaid is a program that helps with medical costs for some people with limited income and resources. Medicaid also offers benefits not normally covered by Medicare, like nursing home care and personal care services. Medicare will usually pay a maximum of 100 days of rehab in a long-term care facility. The family then becomes responsible for all expenses.
