Matthew Bussard Explains Current Medicare Coverage for Long-Term Care

Medicare expert Matthew Bussard explains what long-term care is and what Medicare covers for long-term care.

WARWICK, RHODE ISLAND, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — More and more people retire every year. According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2017 National Population Projections, by 2030, all baby boomers will be older than 65. This means that every 5th American citizen will be reaching their retirement age. The subjects of Medicare, senior care, and long-term care are now becoming more critical than ever.

Matthew Bussard, a financial services broker for Medicare users across Rhode Island, suggests that now is an excellent time for future retirees and their families to learn what is covered and not covered by Medicare.

Matthew graduated from Colby-Sawyer College and assists his clients with initial Medicare enrollment, billing, upgrading to better healthcare plans, finding a new service center, and any other service needed in between. As a financial broker, Bussard focuses on establishing trusting relationships and serving clients long-term.

Bussard says that according to the official United States government site for Medicare, Medicare.gov, long-term care, also referred to as custodial care, is a span of services and support for individual care needs. The majority of long-term care is not classified as medical care. If someone needed assistance with daily activities such as bathing, dressing, using the restroom, eating, moving around, getting up from or into a bed or chair, or other related actions, they would need long-term care. Most nursing home care, assisted living facilities’ care, and assistance in people’s homes are considered long-term or custodial care.

“It is important for everyone eligible for Medicare to understand what personal care needs are covered. That is why I take the time to answer healthcare benefits questions, help clients enroll in Medicare, and alleviate unnecessary medical expenses. Unfortunately, Medicare does not cover long-term care if that is the only personal care an individual needs,” said Matthew Bussard.

Due to long-term care not being considered medical care, Medicare does not cover any cost for living at long-term care facilities or expenses for an in-home assistant. An exception to Medicare coverage for long-term care may be when an individual goes through a Medicare-approved agency to get home health services.

When it comes to paying for long-term care, there are options. Most people pay for costs from their pocket or utilize assets like investments or property. If those resources are ever to run dry, at that point, Medicaid could be an option. Other individuals or families look into getting long-term care insurance to help cover costs. What is covered under long-term insurance depends on the policies’ terms. Those who have served in the military can receive long-term care benefits from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.

5 Questions Accountant Konstantin Lichtenwald Wants You To Answer Before Investing

First-time investors ‘bull-ied’ into the stock market like never before

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, March 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — These beginners dumped a considerable amount of time and money while stuck at home during the pandemic.The stimulus package deposited extra cash in pockets with little to spend it on. Others were just bored, with nothing to do and extra time to kill.The result was a perfect storm. Charles Schwab, an industry leader, reported that new accounts are completing more total trades than any other.And, many more are still eager to jump in.

Before beginning, accountant Konstantin Lichtenwald, based in Vancouver, encourages any first-time investor to ask themselves these five questions.

What type of investor are you?
It sounds like an existential crisis, but it all starts with self-reflection.

Who are you?
You may want to dive right in. You’re hands-on and want to manage every step of the process. Or, researching stocks and prices may feel like a chore. It’s okay to be less active in process.

This will help determine the entire approach.

Luckily, you can still invest no matter how you answer. All that changes is the “how.”

How do you want to allocate resources?
Regardless of your appetite, there’s a flavor for you.

Choosing stocks and funds on your own gives freedom and control over every aspect. Popular online brokerage apps, like Robinhood, have seen spikes from novices after the government released stimulus checks.

If DIY is a little too much, robo-advisors may be an ideal choice. Supported by most major firms, this service promotes expert help for a low-cost fee.

Consulting with a broker is always a good place to start. Konstantin Lichtenwald and other professionals offer assistance and direction where needed.

Can a professional, like Konstantin Lichtenwald, really help?
Simply put, yes.

You have the vision. They provide the game plan.

Accountants and brokers have the experience to create a personalized strategy that works for you. Konstantin Lichtenwald and other CPAs balance short-term interests with long-term goals.

How much should I invest?
Your goals are set.

Now, you need to set a budget.

Individual stock prices vary greatly, ranging from a few dollars to thousands. Selecting the right one can be tricky. As a general rule, these should be a small portion of your allocation.

Choose an exchange-traded fund (ETF) if your budget is limited. Like stocks, these trade for share prices but at fraction of the cost of traditional mutual funds.

Factor in any fees or service charges linked to whatever account you’ve created.

What should I invest in?
It’s time to build your portfolio.

Your goals drive your decisions.

If you’re padding a retirement nest egg, consider an individual retirement account (IRA). These offer tax breaks on your savings.

Konstantin Lichtenwald advises his clients to diversify and reduce risk. Don’t overextend yourself and never invest in a business you don’t understand.

Evan Hiesberger Lawrence KS: Investing in the Best

Evan Hiesberger Lawrence KS: Investing in the Best

Evan Hiesberger Lawrence KS on Investing in the Best

LAWRENCE, KS, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Evan Hiesberger Lawrence KS is an example of someone who is investing in many eco-friendly things in order to make a difference in this world. Investing in Gamestop, electric vehicles, and green energy is one way to accomplish this purpose, and that is what Evan Hiesberger Lawrence KS has done.

In order to invest in Gamestop, one should go to a stockbroker or bank to get started and get the details ironed out. Any financial institution that provides people with brokerage services will do for anyone who wants to make this kind of investment, as Evan Hiesberger Lawrence KS did and continues to do. Gaming stocks are not necessarily related to anything having to do with making the world healthier and greener, but it is a great way to make money for anyone who does invests in them properly. With this money, people who invest in Gamestop successfully will be able to go on and spend the money they acquire here on more noble purposes, such as green energy and electric vehicles, which do have a direct positive impact on the environment. What Evan Hiesberger Lawrence KS has done has shown that this is possible for anyone who is interested in this sort of endeavor.

Evan Hiesberger Lawrence KS has also made a name for himself by investing in green energy and electric vehicles. Some people may be somewhat confused as to what exactly green energy is. Some people may think that the terms "green energy" and "renewable energy" are interchangeable with one another, but the truth is that there is a distinction between them. Green energy includes many different types of power, including the power that is created by wind, solar, low-impact hydroelectric, biogas, geothermal, and certain other eligible biomass sources. These are renewable energy sources that play a role in the power grid and will give you the same type of energy as will any conventional energy source. Renewable energy includes the same sources as does green energy, but it is a broader category and also includes products and technologies that can have a major impact on the environment. Whatever energy you use will be a mixture of conventional, green, and renewable energy because all of the energy is mixed together in the power grid, and it is not possible to separate out types of energy so that you are only using one to power your home or devices.

Though it is up for debate whether or not electric cars are actually greener than those powered by fossil fuels, they are more efficient and do not pollute the air with CO2 while being driven (electric cars release energy electrochemically, without burning any fuel). As such, it makes sense that individuals like Evan Hiesberger Lawrence KS would see these as a worthy investment that could also help to make the earth greener and healthier.

Australia’s Most Comprehensive Medicinal Cannabis Report: H1 2021

Intense medicinal cannabis product competition keeps downward pressure on prices as patient numbers grow by a factor of 15x over the past 2 years

SYDNEY, NSW, AUSTRALIA, March 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — FreshLeaf Analytics is excited to once again release Australia’s most comprehensive medicinal cannabis Patient, Product and Pricing Analysis.

The last 6 months were defined by intense medicinal cannabis product competition, keeping a downward pressure on prices – which is good news for patients.

This report will be the sixth major publication from FreshLeaf, which is the leading source of information, data and analysis on the sector.

KEY HIGHLIGHTS:
– Medicinal cannabis revenue expected to exceed expectations in 2021, hitting A$200m+
– Patient numbers have grown by a factor of 15x over the past two years
– Significant increase in “Authorised Prescribers” after long period of stagnation
– Intense product competition continues as new products flood the market, keeping downward pressure on price
– Average daily dose and average monthly spend stabilise
– Slow-down in delivery format innovation with only 1 new format introduced in last 6 months
– Sizeable patient cohort expected to migrate to the pharmacy channel once low-dose CBD products become available over the counter in pharmacies
– 2021 will bring evolution in the regulatory landscape, a greater emphasis on product quality, growing investment in R&D, and further industry consolidation

Cassandra Hunt, Managing Director of FreshLeaf commented: “The Australian medicinal cannabis market continues its strong growth trajectory with revenue expected to more than double in 2021 from around $100m last year. There’s good news for patients too, with the price of medicine continuing to fall.”

Tim Drury, CEO of Southern Cannabis Holdings: “While we’re excited by the continued growth in the industry, the fact that the illegal market is still more than 10 times larger than the legal market means that we still have a long way to go before we can consider that Australia has the right ecosystem for helping patients”.

The report has also been welcomed by the sector, with key players commenting:

Dr Mark Hardy, Addiction Specialist and CA Clinics Medical Director commented: “When you consider that there were only about 3,000 active patients just two years ago, and that FreshLeaf projects that active patient numbers may climb to 75,000 by the end of 2021, clearly more people have been able to gain access to legal medicinal cannabis. It is of the utmost importance that patients have treatment options, and these figures suggest that cannabinoid medicine is increasingly being accepted as a viable option by the mainstream.”

Clare Barker, GM of Entoura said: "The proliferation of medicinal cannabis products to a total of 190 now available for Australian physicians to prescribe seems like a positive for patient choice on the surface, but it also makes it harder for doctors to differentiate between them. This means that product and delivery format innovation is more important than ever. We brought the only new format in the last 6 months to market in the form of chewable tablets, which are proving to be convenient for active patients and may be more palatable for those who dislike the taste of oils or for children”.

And Peter Crock, MCIA Chairman added: "The report shows that the industry is maturing and local product is coming on stream. This will improve with regulatory reforms currently being worked through. The increase in patients also demonstrates the valuable role for medicinal cannabis and reinforces how important it is that the evidence base catches up, and we can bring products through the registration pathway”.

COVID-19 Has Families Talking About Their Wishes for Their Estate

Female Founders  of Trustate

Tara Faquir, COO & Leah Del Percio, CEO

Image of Trustate

Now is the time for families to sit down and share their wishes for their estates once they have passed on.

We help executors navigate the complex and stressful process of settling the estate of a loved one, regardless of circumstance.”

— Trustate

UNITED STATES, March 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the last 12 months, more and more families have made time to clean closets, covert old video tapes to digital format and organize “their papers.”

“We have seen families disagree and experience frustration around what they believe their loved one wanted for their estate and having everything in order ahead of time, allows families to grieve without the stress of not having clear direction,” said Trustate Co-founder & COO Tara Faquir. “The key is to be prepared and have systems in place to make the process more efficient.”

Here are three things you can do to help your family avoid frustrations:
1. Call a meeting – Individuals can avoid frustration by speaking up and sharing their wishes and details outlined in their Will, particularly with beneficiaries and those making health decisions on their behalf. It is helpful for your beneficiaries to hear from you directly as you structure your estate, and if it is a more complicated estate, then having your lawyer participate is a good idea.
2. Communicate clearly – Let your friends and family know ahead of time how you want your estate structured. If you have made decisions about how to treat your family and friends, letting them while you are still with them, provides an opportunity for them to process the information. Note that this could open the door for them to try to convince you to make changes, resulting in an uncomfortable situation or worse, lasting family feuds. That is why communicating clearly is key to the family understanding your wishes.
3. Leave a note, letter, or a video – If you are not able to speak directly with your beneficiaries, family members and friends, then leaving a letter or video intended for the beneficiaries and family members to explain why you designed the estate plan a certain way is very helpful. The topic of your passing can be unpleasant for everyone and some family members would prefer to avoid it all together, but it is easier to accept when they read or see you sharing your wishes. At Trustate we strongly urge you to consult with an attorney before preparing something like that, as such writings, videos, and voice recordings are admissible as evidence (including any rough drafts, or deleted outtakes).

“If you believe your estate plan can cause drama among family members, we recommend you consult with an experienced estate attorney to coordinate an ‘all hands-on deck’ family meeting, with witnesses and that attorney present, to discuss your estate plan and set expectations. This way, everyone could hear the same information, at the same time, in front of objective observers. By choosing to share your estate plan now, you can get those discussions out of the way and keep everyone on the same page, whether they like it or not,” said Leah Del Percio, Founder and CEO of Trustate

Communicating ahead of time can bring relief and clarity to a family as they work through a very emotional process after a loved one has passed. Trustate is a unique estate administration concierges service that helps families deal with a loved one’s estate once they have passed on and allows the family to grief without the stress of the day-to-day administrative tasks of closing an estate. Trustate is where human empathy and technology meet. They are not a traditional technology firm, as their technology enables their estate concierges to complete estate-focused tasks less expensively if they were done manually.

Both Leah Del Percio and Tara Faquir are available for interviews on the topic of general estate supports and full estate administration services, once a loved one has passed.

Connecticut Law Firm Launches Bi-weekly Webinar Series
Designed to help listeners focus on rarely-discussed legal topics

Law firm Kahan Kerensky Capossela, LLP, also known as KKC Law, as a part of their ongoing mission to provide a top-notch client experience, is launching a bi-weekly webinar series starting this April. The goal of the new series is to help their clients and community learn about certain legal topics and conversations that may not come into discussion a lot, but can still be very important. The first four webinars have already been scheduled and will cover the following topics:

April 7th: With National Pet Day coming soon (April 11th), KKC Law attorney Allison Poirier will be hosting a webinar covering Pet Trusts. This is an important topic that many pet owners may neglect in their estate planning. Points to be discussed include:

● How to choose a caregiver for your pets when you are gone
● How to leave money behind for pet care, as well as how much money you should leave and what instructions you need to provide
● How to make the decision whether or not you need to establish a trust or can leave the money directly with the chosen caregiver

A short Q&A will be held after the webinar’s conclusion.

April 21st: KKC Law attorney Michael Kopsick will host a webinar on Cybersecurity Insurance Coverage. With the world becoming more digital than ever, many business owners still don’t have the necessary coverage to protect their company assets in the event of a computer crime or cybersecurity breach. The webinar will cover:

● The types of coverage available for cybersecurity insurance
● The steps that business owners need to take if they need to file a claim

May 5: KKC Law Attorney William Dakin will discuss when to think about long-term care planning.
Many people wait too long before considering planning. Others wait too long before beginning to explore government assistance options and related application. Learn what you need to consider and when.
