Medicaid Book – Georgia

Medicaid matters to elders and individuals with special needs because it is the only government program providing substantial help paying for significant long-term care. Yes, some long-term care is paid for by Medicare, but only when there is a skilled need, and usually limited to no more than 100 days. Although anyone accessing this website can view The Medicaid Book, it is primarily intended for attorneys and other professionals interested in understanding Medicaid. We have other pages on this website written in more general terms for non-attorneys. These materials are presently being updated and chapters will be published as they become available. Once that is done, we will attempt to keep them as current as possible. If you have any questions, suggestions or corrections regarding the content, please refer them to david@ezelderlaw.com.
