Estate & Asset Protection Attorney, Victoria Collier brings clarity to a common misconception regarding what Medicare covers and the importance of long-term care coverage.
DECATUR, GA, March 22, 2018: Victoria L. Collier, founder of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new blog on her law firm’s website entitled “Most Common Misconception About Medicare, Retirement and Asset Protection.” Ms. Collier helps clients understand one of the most important aspects of creating a well-thought out retirement plan.
According to Collier, “In my practice as an Asset Protection Attorney, I work with many people of various ages at various stages of preparing for retirement” She continues adding, “When I explore what they know about how Medicare works and what it covers, I often hear some common misconceptions that put people at a disadvantage if not cleared up. To that end, I hope the following helps as a jumping off point to clarity in one very important area.”
“The most common misconception I encounter,” Collier writes, “no matter what age group I’m in a conversation with regarding retirement plans, most people believe that Medicare or other regular health insurance will cover the cost of long term care, either at home or in a nursing home.” She emphasizes, “Nothing could be further from the truth.”
As Collier states, “Long-term care is an integral aspect of a well thought out retirement plan and must be clearly understood. This provides a foundation in order to take the appropriate steps to putting a plan in place should care be needed.”
