The average Connecticut Nursing Home charges almost $142,000 + a year – that will break most peoples piggy bank!!
For years, CT took a very large portion of a couples’ savings to pay for the ill spouses nursing home bill even though the State should have known that these actions violated Federal Laws.
The couple had sacrificed new cars, trips etc to save for their retirement and to assure themselves a guaranteed income source. Then one of them became so incapacitated that he had to go to a nursing home and the bulk of that couples money was taken from them.
Federal Court rulings have now forced Connecticut to follow Federal guidelines. If you know how and what to ask the Healthy Spouse can keep the vast majority of his/her assets—if you don’t know how and are not aware of these recent financial live savings developments.
