Elder Law Seminars Hosted By Flushing House

FLUSHING, N.Y., May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As in previous years, Flushing House has scheduled three "Elder Law Seminars" for the Spring of 2013.  The seminars will focus on how the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Medicaid Re-Design in New York State, may impact health care and home care services for older adults.  Medicare changes arising from the ACA will also be explored, as well as asset protection trusts and estate planning. 




Maria Alvarez , Executive Director, NY StateWide Senior Action Council, will give the first seminar on Saturday, June 1, 2013.  Her talk is about the entire range of beneficiary issues i.e., how changes to coverage through Medicare, Managed Care and Medicaid, under the new rules of ACA and Medicaid Re-Design, will impact the scope, choice and delivery of benefits and services for older adults.  Joining Alvarez is Eric Hausman,  Independent Consultant specializing in Medicare Education and Training.  Lani Sanjek, a former top official with StateWide, will also join the discussion.

Ronald Fatoullah , Esq., the noted elder law attorney, will give the second seminar on Saturday, June 8, 2013.  Fatoullah will give an overview of the Medicaid program and explain how to protect one's assets in the event long-term health care is needed.  He will also review five essential legal documents that seniors should have -- the importance of a (i) last will and testament (ii) power of attorney (iii) health care proxy (iv) living will and (v) living trust.

Ann-Margaret Carrozza , Esq., the noted elder law attorney and former NYS Assembly member, will give the third seminar on Saturday, June 15, 2013.  Seniors should know how to protect their homes.  Carrozza will explore asset protection trusts for primary residences, and estate tax planning, in lieu of 2013 Federal estate tax changes.  She will also advise seniors how to get the long-term care they need through Medicaid, while still protecting their assets.

All three seminars will be from 2:30 to 4:00 p.m. in the Flushing House dining room; there will be refreshments available and free handouts from the speakers.  The seminars are open to the public -- admission is free.  If you wish to attend, RSVP to (347) 532-3025 or to

Built in 1974, Flushing House is one of the very first nonprofit retirement communities to offer older adults an "Independent Living" lifestyle, along with supportive services on the premises.
