Enjoy the fireworks, fun and festivities this weekend – after the past year, we earned it!
Just as summer begins to heat up, so do the tropics. If you live in Florida or along the Atlantic or Gulf coasts, make sure you have your hurricane plans in place. Check out Ready.Gov for all the information you need on making hurricane preparations.
In this month’s newsletter, we have an educational video about Medicaid benefits for home-based care and how we can facilitate the securing of these benefits to provide for your loved one’s home care. In a separate article, Florida Medicaid is reinstating certain requirements for skilled nursing facilities, effective July 1. In addition, Florida DCF has updated the Minimum Monthly Maintenance Needs Allowance and the Excess Shelter Standards this month. And last but not least, New York has ended its COVID-19 state of emergency, terminating remote notarizing and witnessing of documents (it needs to be done in person now).
You can find out more below, and as always, please contact us if you have any questions or need further information. Just call (561) 750-3850 or toll free 1-800-ELDERLAW or email us at ELGMarketing@cozen.com. We wish you a happy Fourth of July and a safe, healthy rest of the summer!
