With the growth in the aging population, Certified Medicaid Planners™ are in high demand. As the need for long-term care services rises, more people are forced to look at Medicaid planning to avoid financial ruin. Without help, often a patient can overspend on the cost of long-term care — draining valuable resources from the healthy spouse.
With the help of a Certified Medicaid Planner™ families can have a knowledgeable and experienced guide to navigate the often confusing Medicaid system and to help understand the myriad of rules. As a CMP™, you will be recognized as a stand out in the field.
Because federal Medicaid rules allow anyone to assist a patient with their Medicaid application, Certified Medicaid Planners™ come from a variety of backgrounds including:
- Legal Services
- Financial Planning
- Certified Accounting
- Geriatric Care/Social Work
- Medicaid Program Service
Families in crisis often don’t know where to look to get help for their Medicaid planning issues. They turn to the CMP™, the only credential of its kind, to find help they can trust. Through the education and experience requirements, the public know that a CMP™ isn’t a Johnny-Come-Lately to the Medicaid planning field. Each CMP™ must agree to uphold the highest professional/ethical standards and submit themselves to the CMP™ program disciplinary process. To stand out in your profession, earning the CMP™ designation will show that you have proven yourself by passing a tough certification exam.
At the end of the day, the mission of a CMP™ is to help people. A career as a CMP™ is one of the most rewarding because there’s nothing that beats the ability to help families in crisis provide for their loved ones. As the Baby Boomers age, more people will need help and when they turn to a CMP™ for assistance, they can turn to you.
