No matter the level of income, taking care of our loved ones is important to everyone. It can be difficult to afford nursing home care, and Medicaid is designed to allow an individual to obtain the care that they need. However, Medicaid is not available to everyone. It is available to certain individuals or families that fit into several categories of eligibility. This eligibility depends upon both federal and state law. Depending on your eligibility, and whether or not you are married, the attorneys at The Law Offices of Jayme L. Levy, LLC, can work on your behalf to secure your benefits and help you retain assets—approximately one-half of all assets for a single individual and all assets for a married couple.
Medicaid does not pay money directly to the individual in need; instead, it sends payments directly to the health care providers. While some plans do require a small co-payment for some services, it is important for individuals to apply for Medicaid.
Individuals who are 65 or older and/or are disabled and residing in a long-term care facility (nursing home) can apply for long-term Medicaid if they meet both financial and medical requirements.
Applying for Medicaid is not necessarily a cut-and-dry process. You may qualify for care through Medicaid based on a variety of different factors.
