A Medicaid Crisis Situation
When a person is told that he or she must enter a nursing home immediately or in the very near future and has been denied assistance from Medicaid to help cover the cost (or is otherwise not currently eligible for Medicaid long-term care benefits), it leads to what is often called a “Medicaid crisis” situation.
Considering the high cost of long-term care, it is easy to understand why ineligibility for Medicaid assistance represents a financial crisis for most families.
If you or a loved one is facing a Medicaid crisis, you should know that information about Medicaid eligibility provided by family, friends and other well-meaning individuals is often inaccurate or simply outdated.
We understand the laws governing Medicaid eligibility and can determine if you are in fact eligible for Medicaid assistance. Even if you or a loved one is already in a nursing home, we oftentimes are still able to help.
