How An Attorney Can Help You Get Better Results With Medicaid

While it is possible to complete Medicaid forms and applications on your own, it is highly beneficial to work with an attorney through the process. What many people do not realize is that your application can be denied, which can negatively impact your future financial state.

Whether it be a home care or nursing home Medicaid application, we understand the complicated regulations that surround Medicaid and will work to help you complete your application accurately so you receive the benefits you deserve.

Why Work With A Lawyer?

Although there are agencies and other organizations that claim to provide help with complicated Medicaid documents, working with an attorney who’s knowledgeable in elder law is the best way to ensure your application will be accurate, complete and correct. There are numerous Medicaid statues, regulations and guidelines in play that can affect how an application is processed and whether or not it will be approve.

  • Gifting
  • Eligibility periods
  • Penalty periods and exceptions
  • Surplus income
  • Utilization of pooled income only trusts
