Sharon R. Luker, CFP®, MBA - Owner, LTC Planning Consultants


This course will look at all facets of health insurance. It will outline some of the changes that happened in January 2020 when the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act 2015 (MACRA) went into effect.  Changes to Medicare Supplements, Advantage plans and the newly offered Medical Savings Account (MSA) will be discussed. The course will expose some current holes in Medicare and what solutions are out there to cover them. It will show how to handle Medicare if your clients are still working at age 65. Different options for individual health plans (under 65) will be illustrated such as the ACA plans, short term plans, level benefit plans and the faith-based plans. Small group options will be looked at including self-funded plans. Lastly, current options in student college plans will be discussed. This talk will be on an advanced nature assuming attendees have basic knowledge of these areas.

Joy C. McNair, J.D., LL.M, CDP - Estate Planning and Elder Law Attorney, McNair Law Group, PLLC


The demand for Medicaid is rapidly growing. With an increase in longevity and the rising cost of long-term care, many seniors are experiencing hardship when it comes to paying for long-term care. In some cases, families end up losing everything to pay for long-term care expenses.  But, this doesn't have to be. This session will explore the riveting topics of Medicaid and how it can be used to supplement the cost of long-term care when long-term care insurance is not an option or has been exhausted. More importantly, we'll discuss how you can support your clients in avoiding nursing home poverty and become a hero to your clients and their families. This session will address: What clients' fear; Typical scenarios that can or should lead to your involvement (being the hero); The 'old' way of doing things and why it doesn't work; How Medicaid works; Pre-planning & crisis planning options; and How an Elder law attorney can support you.
