065 – What’s the Difference Between Medicare and Medicaid?

Medicaid

Today I answer the question – What’s the difference between Medicare and Medicaid in a long term care setting? The short answer is Medicare is a type of health insurance and Medicaid pays for someone’s long term care as a last resort (when all other resources have been exhausted).  This episode barely scratches the surface when you are trying to define those two incredibly important public benefits and, specifically, how they relate to long term care but it serves as a good overview and gives some good general information that can assist you when you are trying to decipher the benefits your elderly loved one has or needs.

I hope you find this helpful and I will talk to you soon!
