As part of planning, an elder law attorney will also explain the coverage differences between Medicare and Medi-Cal or Medicaid, as well as the appropriate use and limitations of financial products such as insurance and various annuities that are often sold to elders for the purposes of paying for care, qualifying for VA benefits, and qualifying for Medi-Cal benefits. An experienced elder law attorney can also help individuals who find it painful to discuss the subjects of their future care and dying with their families, or who do not wish to reveal their financial circumstances to their families. Finally, an elder law attorney will bring the peace of mind to individuals and their loved ones that comes from knowing that a plan is in place for their future care, should it be needed.
