NASHVILLE, Tenn. /Publishers Newswire/ — K. Gabriel Heiser, attorney and author of the best-selling book “How to Protect Your Family’s Assets from Devastating Nursing Home Costs: Medicaid Secrets” (ISBN: 978-0979080159; Phylius Press 2010), will be interviewed on the John Stossel Fox TV show Stossel, on Thursday, March 25, 2010. Heiser was selected to appear on the show — which taped last week — because of the topic of his book, which addresses how people can protect their assets through legal means while qualifying for Medicaid to pay their nursing home bills.

John Stossel, former co-anchor of the long-running ABC News show 20/20 and now on Fox TV, will interview attorney and author Heiser as part of an hour-long show looking at the future of entitlements such as Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid in the U.S., in light of their increasing costs as the Baby Boomer generation ages.

“It was exciting being on the Stossel show, and more importantly, it gave me a chance to explain the role of Medicaid planning,” said Heiser. “John asked me some tough questions, and I had to explain how Medicaid planning is no different from tax planning: in each case, you are simply making use of the laws that Congress has passed, to your best advantage. There is nothing illegal, sneaky, or even unpatriotic about that!”

Heiser has been an attorney specializing in elder care and estate planning for 25 years, helping people pay for nursing home care without having to deplete their assets. His book, available at, discusses the importance of advance planning to protect assets in the event of an upcoming nursing home stay; what to do if there is not enough time to plan; how to protect your home; what the penalties are for making gifts and when they can be ignored; and how to utilize “Medicaid-friendly” annuities as an asset protection device.

The show will air this Thursday (March 25) (on the Fox Business Network) at 8 p.m. ET. It re-runs that night at 11 p.m. ET, Friday at 10pm ET, Saturday at 7 p.m. ET, and Sunday at 10 p.m. ET.
