The rising costs of nursing home care may impact farm families harder than others due to farm assets that may limit or prevent a family member from qualifying for Medicaid. Medicaid often isn’t a good fallback for many farmers due to the wealth tied to land ownership.
Federal laws that allow the government to recover Medicaid expenditures from an estate can force the sale of family farmland and other assets that remain in the decedent’s name or were transferred within 5 years of qualifying for Medicaid.
To help address these needs, Ohio STate University is hosting a free webinar to provide information on how families may be able to plan for long-term health care costs. The webinar, “Nursing Home Costs and Medicaid: The One-Two Punch to the Family Farm,” will feature a presentation by Craig Vandervoort of the law firm Sitterly and Vandervoort Ltd. in Lancaster.
Instructions for signing into the live webinar are on OSU Extension’s Agricultural Law and Taxation website. The webinar will also be archived on the site after the presentation.
