Care planning is important for California residents because of asset seizure guidelines that are used for Medi-Cal recipients, as well as other reasons. In a recent blog post, we discussed how the asset seizure guidelines for the state might be changing. Even if those changes go into effect, care planning will still be important because of some of the other factors that make this aspect of estate planning so important.
