The Medicaid program is a labyrinth of laws governing eligibility and the slightest mistake can cause devastating consequences. Don't try to apply without first seeking professional help. Your family already has enough on their shoulders, let us minimize the stress of the Medicaid process.
When a family member needs long-term care, whether at home or in a facility, the financial burden placed on a family can be overwhelming. To make matters more challenging, most seniors are unaware that, even though they are covered by Medicare insurance, they are still at risk for a long term care crisis. They face this risk because Medicare only covers limited long-term care services. After Medicare coverage ends, families often turn to their state's Medicaid program to help cover the cost of care. Medicaid is a complicated social health care program that is funded by the federal and state governments and is implemented on the county level. Applying for Medicaid involves pages of complicated forms, and requires gathering and organizing volumes of financial and medical documentation. Even a small mistake can cost an individual his or her eligibility, and leave the family with thousands of dollars of expenses.
