Do you have questions about Medicare/Medicaid, health care proxies or other probate issues?

"Taking Control of Your Future: A Legal Checkup," is the Massachusetts Bar Association’s resource guide on a wide range of legal issues affecting the lives of seniors. The guide, prepared by attorneys, is made possible due to the participation, generous assistance and continued collaboration of the Massachusetts Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys. Topics include:

  • Commonly Asked Questions in Elder Law
  • Veterans Affairs Financial Benefits
  • Medicaid (MassHealth)
  • Reverse Mortgages
  • Medicare: What You Need to Know
  • Long-term Care Insurance
  • Protecting the Home: Homestead and Tax Exemptions
