The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation’s Focus Magazine is pleased to announce the publication of “Planning for Your Family’s Long-Term Care” by Mark Shalloway, a noted elder care and special needs care attorney in West Palm Beach. The article addresses the soaring costs for at-home care for those with multiple sclerosis. It includes information on care for veterans and what the Veterans Administration covers as well as insight and tips for estate planning and assisted living facilities.
Mr. Shalloway’s article also explores the ramifications and intricacies of Medicaid coverage including coverage for assisted living and nursing home costs. More than 95% of nursing homes today accept Medicaid. Interestingly, the article explores the legal and moral questions of coverage by Medicaid for specific conditions and disease. Extended coverage for multiple sclerosis sufferers in need of long term care is not provided by Medicaid while those in need of heart surgery can find coverage from the government program.
One of the single greatest threats to a middle class family’s assets over time is the cost of elder care or care for those with diseases like multiple sclerosis. Mr. Shalloway’s article addresses the hard costs of long term care and its impact on the financial picture for families and couples.
Mark Shalloway is a leading elder care and special needs attorney noted for his writings and public educational forums that offer insight and clarity into the many financial and insurance questions surrounding health care. He is the founder and President of Shalloway & Shalloway, a law firm in West Palm Beach established in 1992.
