Medicaid Planners Find Huge Advantage in Becoming a CMP™

If you haven’t heard about the Certified Medicaid Planner™ designation by now, it’s one of the fastest growing accredited designations in the country.

The focus of the CMP™ designation is to demonstrate a planners’ high skill and experience in Medicaid Planning, as well as a planner’s commitment to both high standards and high ethics. The CMP™ Governing Board was established nearly a decade ago to help set standards in the field of Medicaid Planning and devise a testing system to validate skill in the field. No other multi-discipline organization is committed to this goal.

Medicaid Planning is a growing practice area for law firms and financial advisors who are committed to helping clients navigate the long-term care spenddown. Much like the US Tax Code, the Medicaid Code is complex and difficult for most seniors to understand. A Certified Medicaid Planner has demonstrated the proven skill to help clients like that with a deep understanding of the complexity of these rules and their practical application.

Families are often dealing with the Medicaid spenddown at the same time as a crisis health care situation that caused the loved one to enter the nursing home. With the high cost of care, a Medicaid Planner’s role is vital to ensuring that the patient does not spend more on the cost of car than the law requires.

The high cost of long-term care is the single biggest risk to retirement assets ever in the history of the United States. Uninsured patients needing long-term care services are unable to get the financial help they need without relying on the Medicaid system. Advanced Medicaid Planning will always maximize savings for the patient and his or her spouse, making the work of the Certified Medicaid Planner™ invaluable and providing the planner and the planner’s clients with a huge advantage.
