The Application Process
The process begins when we receive a call from the individual who will be handling the financial affairs of the applicant. The following steps are then set into action:
- A meeting is arranged with one of our Medicaid consultant’s all of whom have at least 10 years completing Medicaid applications. The individual is sent our welcome letter along with a checklist of basic items that are needed to start the application.
- At the first meeting, our consultant will answer any questions or concerns as well as complete the Medicaid application. They will also review the required documents and put together a list of additional information if necessary.
- The application is submitted and a Medicaid case worker will be assigned. Very often Medicaid sends a request for additional information. If so, you will be informed by your Medicaid consultant that these documents are needed with a deadline to provide them.
- The application is approved.
Average time for approval is approximately 2-4 months from date of application.
The process is similar but extra steps are involved. The state allows a spouse to keep a certain amount of assets. Our Medicaid consultant will show you how the process works.
