In Legal Terms: Medicaid

Our laws are created to help us and protect us. We should try to know our laws and regulations, so we don’t step over the line so as to be illegal, but we should know where the line is to get the most of our rights. Richard Courtney is going to help us navigate the Mississippi laws of Medicaid.https://elderlawms.com/richard-a-courtney/


There’s an easy to remember website where you can see if you qualify for Medicaid, locate a regional office, or watch a webinar. It’s https://medicaid.ms.gov/


If you love to know your rights – you could go to Bendefits.gov “your path to government benefits” to learn more about Mississippi Medicaid. https://www.benefits.gov/benefit/1631

  • In Legal Terms: Estate Planning 2024

    43:04
    MPB Think Radio’s In Legal Terms with expert host attorney Adam Kilgore. We’ve got our most popular topic on the show today – Estate Planning. Everyone will die at some point. If you want a say on what happens to your property after you die, now is the time to make plans. Our guest Elizabeth Wynn from Kyle-Wynn and Associates will give us tips. If you’d like to read up on estate planning, Kyle-Wynn’s website has a resources tab with pdfs with information on HIPPA, trusts, veteran’s benefits and Medicaid information. https://www.mpbfoundation.org/ has a link and information about creating a will. There’s also information about leaving a legacy and planned donations. About 1 in 9 people (10.9%) age 65 and older has Alzheimer’s dementia. The percentage of people with Alzheimer’s dementia increases with age. 33.4% of people age 85 and older have Alzheimer’s dementia. People younger than 65 can also develop Alzheimer's dementia. Although prevalence studies of younger onset dementia in the U.S. are limited, researchers believe about 110 of every 100,000 people age 30 to 64 years, or about 200,000 Americans in total, have younger-onset dementia. https://www.alz.org/media/Documents/alzheimers-facts-and-figures.pdf

  • In Legal Terms: Intellectual Property

    45:33
    Mississippi has some fantastically creative individuals. We want to protect all those ideas by talking about intellectual property. Get your questions ready all you song writers, artists, poets. Kamel King – attorney will help us learn.If someone was thinking of maybe “borrowing” another’s idea or creation. You might want to check out the 2020 Mississippi Code; Title 97 – Crimes; Chapter 45 - Computer Crimes and Identity Theft;section 97-45-9. Offense against intellectual property; penalties There’s some big money fines for in appropriate actions.One thing that I love about Mississippi is our music history. So many artists and such rich history are a part of our story. If you’re interested in learning more – take a little field trip to a Mississippi Country Music Trail or Mississippi Blues Trail marker. You can start at the https://visitmississippi.org/things-to-do/music/ website to learn about our experiences.I haven’t looked at his calendar, but he probably can’t help everyone in Mississippi with their legal issues. Luckily the Mississippi Bar has a page for attorneys. They have a way to find an attorney. https://www.msbar.org/inside-the-bar/sections/intellectual-property-entertainment-sports-law-section/ https://www.msbar.org/
