DECATUR, GA, May 12, 2022: Shannon Pawley, Owner of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new blog on the law firm’s website entitled “The Difference Between Medicare And Medicaid” in which Ms. Pawley acknowledges how easily people are confused about the two programs.

Pawley writes, “I find that many people are confused by the two government sponsored programs, Medicare, and Medicaid. It’s easy to confuse them because their names sound very much alike.” She elaborates, “Both programs were established in 1965 and are funded by taxpayers. They were designed to help cover healthcare costs for American citizens. The details of each program are many and varied and require an understanding of how the benefits are accessed.” Pawley notes, “My objective here is to simply clarify the major difference between the two programs. For deeper understanding, my office provides free workshops which you can sign up for by visiting our website at”

Pawley turns her attention first to Medicare and invites readers to “Think about Medicare as an “insurance” program. The “care” at the end of the word is the focus,” she adds. She then explains what the program primarily does before focusing on Medicaid.

According to Pawley, “You can think about Medicaid as an “assistance” program.” She writes, “Medicaid serves low-income people as well as those without access to other resources of every age.”
