The basics of Medicaid in New Jersey

Many people in New Jersey and across the nation take the step of establishing a long-term care plan for how they want to pay for the health care services they or a loved one will need as they age. Some people will want to utilize Medicaid services as a means of affording health care services. It is important to have a basic understanding of what Medicaid is, so you can determine if it is right for you.

Things a will cannot do

At the end of the day, you cannot afford to delay writing your will. Approximately 64 percent of Americans still lacked a will as of 2015. In the event you pass away without such a document, then your loved ones may not get the assets you want them to have. 

Choosing the least-restrictive alternative in guardianship

When a person is appointed as a guardian over another person, making medical decisions on behalf of that individual can be difficult. After all, while guardianship in New Jersey is seen as a last resort, guardians still have the duty to make decisions the incapacitated individual would have wanted for themselves. Therefore, there are principles New Jersey guardians should abide by. One of these principles is choosing the least restrictive alternative when it comes to medical care.
