The Medicaid program is a federal program that is administered by New York State in conjunction with local social service districts such as the Nassau and Suffolk County Departments of Social Services or the New York City Human Resources Administration (HRA). It is a complex system of rules and regulations with many nuances. The rules are ever changing and one should seek counsel from an experienced elder law attorney whom regularly practices in the area. The law firm of Schneider, Garrastegui & Fedele PLLC has successfully handled hundreds of Medicaid applications for their clients*.
There are different types of Medicaid coverage, namely community Medicaid and Nursing home Medicaid. Community Medicaid covers home care services, acute hospital care, prescriptions and all other services except nursing home care. Nursing Home Medicaid covers all of the same services of community Medicaid and covers Nursing home daily rate charges. The current average monthly nursing home cost in New York is approximately $12,500.00.
The Medicaid application on its face looks straightforward but in practice, the process is quite complex due to the documentation and the myriad of rules and regulations. Some liken the process to putting together a puzzle. The government is continuingly adding pieces to the puzzle. In order for a person to be accepted into the Medicaid program all of the puzzle pieces must fit together. Let us help you figure out the Medicaid puzzle. Contact us at (631) 756-6006.
