According to the Census Bureau, nearly 8,000 Americans turn 60 years old each day. The chances of getting cancer increase with age – even though it has become prevalent among younger adults, it is most common in adults 65 and older. And, we know that 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will get cancer in their lifetimes.
Raleigh attorney Bill Alexander, whose law firm specializes in elder care, talks about legal and financial issues that older adults with cancer should consider. Bill also hosts “Asset Protection Today” on WPTF radio, Saturdays, 11 am-noon.
Topics covered in part 1 and part 2 of our conversation with Bill include what Medicare will cover, the impact of the Affordable Care Act, cancer insurance, Social Security assistance, and more.
