With the average health care costs exceeding $7,700 per month and the average age of the farmer predicted to be 60 and older based on anticipated US Department of Agriculture Census data, the need for aging services for farmers is immediate and neglected. As most individuals over 65 years old seek health care coverage through Medicaid, the need to protect one’s property to qualify is often overlooked until long-term care is immediate. For farmers who are often “land rich and cash poor” the need to choose between protecting generationally-owned land and qualifying for Medicaid should not be a choice. Farmers should never be forced to sell their land to cover nursing care costs. To become eligible for Medicaid, you must meet certain demographic and income qualifications. This webinar will provide you with general information about Medicaid and its impact on small farmers specifically regarding Medicaid lien enforcement.
