Budget increase may help with Medicaid planning

Many people assume that planning for medical expenses is reserved for only those who are elderly, but that is not the case. No matter the age, people with disabilities often have different medical needs than the general population. These needs can translate to higher costs, which are often offset by Medicare. Even with government assistance, families have to consider long-term strategies for caring for loved ones with disabilities. Fortunately, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently proposed a budget increase to Medicaid that may help more families with Medicaid planning.

Lawmakers consider legislation for guardianships

Some people, whether it is due to age or disability, do not have the means to properly care for themselves. Sometimes, their families may decide that the best choice is to establish a guardianship for that person, to ensure that his or her best interests are protected. Though this is often the right decision for many people, professional guardianships here in Florida have recently come under fire. After one professional guardian was accused of misconduct, a state lawmaker decided to support legislation that would protect senior citizens.
