  • Medicare and Medicaid 101: Your Medicare Card Explained

    It’s sort of like your insurance card that has your basic information as well as provider and plan information. Soon after enrolling in Medicare, you’ll receive a red, white and blue Medicare card in the mail. If you’re automatically enrolled in Medicare, you’ll receive your card three months before your 65th birthday or within your 25th month of receiving disability benefits. Your Medicare card carries a host of important information: including whether you have Part A (Hospital Insurance) or Part B (Medical Insurance) or both, and the date that your coverage starts. Like your insurance provider card, it is important to carry your Medicare Card with you at all times, in the event that you require any kind of medical attention (i.e. hospital and doctor visits, both planned and unplanned).

  • Medicare and Medicaid 101: General Information

    It’s pretty easy to confuse Medicare and Medicaid, especially since they’re both government sponsored programs that pay for health care, nursing homes and long-term care costs. Often, the terms “Medicare” and “Medicaid” are used interchangeably, but it’s important to understand that these two programs are not the same. Generally speaking, Medicare is a health program for older people (65+), while Medicaid is for any person of any age who has limited income or resources. Read on to learn more about these two programs, why they’re needed, and what you need to do now to start planning for your future.

  • Resources for Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation

    The entire United States is in the midst of one of the worst drug crises of the century. In the last decade, death rates as a direct result of opioid overdoses have risen among individuals between the ages of 25 and 44 in almost every racial group in the U.S. After a century of decreases, the death rate in this age group grew over 8% between 2010 and 2015. In Maryland specifically, opioid overdoses now rank with cancer, strokes and heart attacks among the top killers in the state. In 2016 alone nearly 2,000 people died from heroin and other opioid overdoses, about double the number of deaths in 2015. With that astonishing number in mind and several new news reports a day on how the crisis is worsening, it’s no wonder Maryland Governor Larry Hogan signed into law several new pieces of legislation aimed at educating the public and establishing measures that would serve to abate the current crisis. Governor Hogan also declared a state of emergency in March of this year saying, “This is about taking an all-hands-on-deck approach so that together we can save the lives of thousands of Marylanders.”

  • Why are postnuptial agreements on the rise?

    We’re probably more familiar with the term “prenuptial agreements” as we hear again and again the details of a failing celebrity marriage and all the gory details laid out in contracts that they sign well before walking down the aisle. What we probably don’t hear about as frequently are postnuptial agreements. So, what are they and what’s the difference? The term is pretty self-explanatory. While a prenuptial agreement is a contract entered into prior to marriage that dictates how the assets that each spouse brings into the marriage (and often assets accumulated during the marriage) would be divided in the event of a divorce, a postnuptial agreement is a contract of similar substance, but it’s one that is drawn up and signed by both spouses after they’ve said “I do”. A postnuptial agreement can come in the days, weeks, years; sometimes even decades after vows are exchanged. And according to a recent survey by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, 50% of divorce attorneys report an increase in spouses seeking a postnuptial agreement during the last three years.
