California Medicaid rules are truly one of a kind – but we have asked some experts to teach them to you. The California program (called Medi-Cal) can help your clients pay for the high costs of long-term care. We have created a course that will give you an introduction to the strategies specific to California as a first step in adding these services to your law practice.

In this video series (total running time = 7 hours) you will receive an introductory course to Medi-Cal planning strategies so you can start your journey in helping Californians get the care they need while also ensuring their estates pass to their family.
