Cuyahoga Falls Medicaid Updates Lawyer
Many people are confused by the difference between Medicare and Medicaid. Medicare is a health insurance program for Americans over the age of 65. It does not cover all medical expenses and usually does not cover long-term care.
Medicaid is an entitlement program created in 1965 to provide health care and long-term care insurance to people who would otherwise not be able to afford it. It is funded by both the federal and state governments, and is regulated by federal requirements.
For many middle-class families, Medicaid is the only way the family can afford to provide long-term nursing care for a parent over 65 or a disabled family member.
