In prior years, Flushing House has scheduled three “Elder Law Seminars” for Spring 2016. These seminars will focus on how changes brought about by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Medicaid Re-Design/Expansion in New York State, are impacting health care and home care services for seniors. Medicare changes arising from the ACA will also be explored, as well as asset protection trusts and estate planning.
Ann-Margaret Carrozza, Esq., the noted elder law attorney, will give the first seminar on Saturday, June 4. Carrozza will discuss protecting one’s home against long term care claims while retaining control over it, as well as how to use a trust to protect assets and qualify for Medicaid home care one month later. In addition, she will discuss the role of Spousal Refusal to protect a family’s assets.
Ronald Fatoullah, Esq., the noted elder law attorney, will give the second seminar on Saturday, June 11. Fatoullah will speak about the five essential documents every senior should have. Learn the importance of living trusts, wills, powers of attorney, health care proxies, plus living wills. Understand why these documents are essential parts of any estate, elder law and financial plan. Learn how a Medicaid Asset Protection Trust can protect your assets and your home.
Maria Alvarez, Executive Director, NY StateWide Senior Action Council, and Eric Hausman, Independent Medicare Consultant, will give the third seminar on Saturday, June 18. Alvarez will update Patient’s Rights Issues for NY seniors. Hausman will discuss Medicare and related insurance, i.e., Medicare Part A and B, Medigap/Medicare Supplemental Insurance, Medicare Advantage/Medicare Health Plans, Medicare Part D and EPIC, etc.
All three seminars will be from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. in the Flushing House large game room; there will be refreshments available and free handouts from the speakers. The seminars are open to the public — admission is free. If you wish to attend, RSVP to (347) 532-3025 or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
