Preparing A Medicaid Application

May 16, 2022

The Medicaid application process can be very confusing and may introduce complications without the help of a professional. Our team at Curran Estate Law can help navigate these obstacles so your application is completed swiftly and without error. We want to identify when you should hire assistance and other details related to Medicaid.

First, what is Medicaid exactly?

For individuals who lack proper insurance, Medicaid will help cover care they receive at home or in nursing homes. There are a variety of factors that can play a role in eligibility and coverage, which includes age, income, household size, and more. Depending on your circumstances, professional assistance may be exactly what you need.

Assistance for Medicaid may be more applicable based on a certain set of questions.

These questions include:

  • What is the age of the applicant?

  • What is the financial situation of the applicant?

  • Are they applying for community or nursing home benefits?

  • How much available time does the applicant have?

  • Lastly, how organized is the applicant?

An Elder Law firm can protect more assets than having the nursing home handle your application.  The application process also requires a variety of financial documents and records that may be difficult to keep track of over time. Even if the application goes through, applicants may not be maximizing their benefits.

With assistance from a professional, there are several upsides throughout the process. An attorney has expert insight into the process and key factors to be prepared for. This includes advice, resolving complex application questions, and step-by-step service from start to finish as well as preserving assets.
