Senior Planning Services Teams Up with SeniorNet to Educate Seniors On Medicaid Planning


Howell, NJ (PRWEB) November 26, 2014 --


Senior Planning Services, providing expert guidance for elder care issues, and Florida-based SeniorNet, a nonprofit organization providing the adult demographic education and access to computer technologies, have teamed up to help seniors navigate the rough seas of applying for Medicaid. Part of this program will focus on educating seniors on the topic of Medicaid eligibility and proper planning, while also helping them through the somewhat complicated process of applying for this coverage.


Senior Planning Services has made its mark in the industry as a veteran healthcare consulting company that is all about giving back to the community and helping where it makes a difference. Billed as the ultimate solution for optimized Medicaid eligibility, Senior Planning Services reports that thousands of Medicaid applicants and their families have relied on their expertise, promising a secure financial future for their qualified applicants.


The Medicaid application process is often frustrating for applicants and their families, states a Senior Planning Services spokesperson. The risk of failure is real, and the cost of failure can be financially devastating. This is why we have teamed up with SeniorNet because when a loved one is in need of long-term care, it is likely that there are numerous challenges to contend with.


Since its inception in 1986, SeniorNets mission has been to help seniors and those with specific needs by providing computer education, internet skills and sharing the latest technologies. As a premiere educational 501(c)3 nonprofit, SeniorNet has benefitted more than two million people. It has learning Centers throughout the U.S. including Indian Reservations in rural and urban areas as well as its affiliations in other countries.


Leslie M. Smith, retired IBM Business Development Executive and SeniorNet Chairman of the Board said, "this is another great example of collaboration to support our valuable and precious seniors. We believe that the information provided by Senior Planning Services will be very helpful to seniors."
