Are you faced with a deadline to qualify your loved one for MaineCare? Black Funeral Homes has expertise in establishing irrevocable funeral accounts. Our preplanning specialists understand that time is of the essence with a MaineCare Spend Down. If you don’t have your application in on time, it could mean paying more health care bills than necessary.
The best way to establish an irrevocable funeral account is to call us at (207) 324-4104 and set up an appointment with one of our funeral directors.
It is often possible to pay for a funeral and have those funds considered a non-asset for MaineCare evaluation. MaineCare situations may change, but our documentation will always comply with requirements at the time the arrangements are made. As of January 2019, an irrevocable mortuary trust of up to $12,000 is considered an exempt asset under MaineCare.
The trust can be funded and the specific details of the funeral can be planned from the big to the little details. We’ll be honored to walk you through this process.
