New Jersey Elder Law Attorney Discusses Important Medicaid Changes in 2011

Cherry Hill, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) June 9, 2011 - On June 6, noted elder law attorney Thomas D. Begley, III served as a panelist for the National Business Institute (NBI) program “Medicaid Update 2011” which was held at the Holiday Inn in Cherry Hill. This presentation was made to a diverse group of attorneys, accountants, and paralegals. His presentation included a discussion about qualifying clients for public benefits, planning tips and traps after the Deficit Recovery Act of 2006, and Medicaid estate recovery.

NBI provides continuing legal education for a variety of professions including the legal, accounting, and financial field. It gives substantive and practical knowledge so that attendees gain more skills and effectiveness for their respective practices. Begley is a frequent lecturer on elder law, estate, tax and disabilities planning, and estate and trust administration. As part of the Begley Law Group, he is aware of the latest Medicaid updates and how the new federal reforms vary from a state’s Medicaid policies.

“With the new framework, it’s very important to counsel clients on what is covered and what expenses they must pay for,” Begley said. “Having a working knowledge of the changes in 2011 will help an attorney advise their clients to make the best financial planning decisions.”

Begley is a former Director of the Elder Law Section of the New Jersey State Bar Association as well as a former chair of the Estate Planning and Probate Committee of the Burlington County Bar Association.

Major humanitarian relief efforts respond to large-scale natural and unnatural disasters. Strangers donate time and money to individuals injured in tragic accidents. Often, the first instinct upon learning that someone is hurt is to give money. Unfortunately, unbeknownst to the donor, this kind and selfless act can have devastating ramifications for the injured individual and his or her family. If the injured individual or a family member is receiving means-tested government benefits, such as SSI or Medicaid, [...]
