Medicaid Application Attorney in New York
NY Elder Law Lawyer Helping Clients Offset the Costs of Long-Term Care
The cost of long-term care could potentially wipe out a lifetime of savings and hard work. Some elderly citizens are fortunate enough to qualify for other long-term care options, including insurance. Although some insurance plans provide temporary health care solutions, costly insurance deductibles could still put vulnerable elderly citizens in debt.
If you are in need of long-term care and cannot afford the current costs of medical care, you may be eligible for Medicaid. At Korsinsky & Klein, LLP, our New York elder law attorneys are dedicated to protecting the rights of elderly citizens and their families. We will help you determine if you are eligible and take action so you can receive the care and treatment that you need.
What is Medicaid?
Medicaid has been a blessing for many individuals who have no other way to finance their health care needs; however, Medicaid standards for approval have become increasingly restrictive. If you are approved for Medicaid, the government program can provide:
- Emergency medical care
- Hospital inpatient and outpatient care
- Long-term care in a home agency or nursing facility
- Medical supplies
- Physician services
- Transportation to and from medical appointments
- Treatment and preventive health and dental care
Medicaid is a program funded by the federal government and the state of New York. Medicaid provides medical assistance to low-income individuals, specifically those who are 65 years or older, disabled or blind. Eligibility for Medicaid is determined by New York’s Medicaid agency and will be based on your income and assets.
