This talk is an overview of the differences between two frequently used government programs, Medicare and Medicaid, with regard to long-term care coverage. The course will explain what Medicare covers and then specifically address rehabilitation coverage following an emergency room visit if a patient is observed or admitted. It will also comment on a case that sets forth the threshold for continued eligibility for rehabilitation coverage under Medicare. The course will then explain what Medicaid covers, with regard to long-term care expenses and specifically address how Medicaid works for a single person and married couple. It will discuss the Medicaid penalty and look back and explain the Qualified Income Trust (QIT).
