We provide our clients with a legally viable, customized strategy designed to preserve your assets, rather than spend them down on costly Nursing Home expenses. Clients receive a formal recommendation and clear plans for restructuring assets to preserve them are provided to the client. Then, we complete the Medicaid application for you and submit it for guaranteed approval. We work with experienced Medicaid attorneys in our process of helping you meet your eligibility requirements.
Our initial meeting is usually a telephone conversation and at that time, we’ll learn about you, your family and the family member applying for Medicaid. If needed however, we can meet with you face to face to review your family’s situation in greater detail at one of our offices located throughout the state.
By the conclusion of this call, you’ll learn valuable information/facts about applying for Medicaid, and why your decision to consult Medicaid Eligibility was a sound one.
We’ll also gather information regarding the applicant’s finances to accurately assess the situation. Some of the information we will need to get and go over with you:
As part of Florida’s requirements, you must pass BOTH, a Medicaid income test and a Medicaid asset test, in order to become eligible for nursing home benefits.Understanding these tests and using them to your best advantage is an important reason to contact a knowledgeable Medicaid eligibility practitioner.
