Medicaid Fair Hearing Attorney in New York

What is a Fair Hearing?

Essentially, a Medicaid fair hearing is an appeal to request that a denied application for Medicaid, be reviewed. You have the right to appeal for a Medicaid fair hearing in a number of situations. Our New York elder law attorneys are dedicated to preserving the rights of elderly citizens throughout New York and are ready to represent you in a fair hearing regarding the following Medicaid issues:

  • You were ruled ineligible for Medicaid.
  • Your Medicaid coverage was denied, suspended, reduced or stopped.
  • Your Medicaid request was delayed or not responded to.

A Medicaid appeal will grant you the opportunity to petition for the benefits that you need. To learn more about your options for a fair hearing or to discuss whether or not you are eligible for Medicaid, speak with a member of our Medicaid Fair Hearing team of attorneys. We have experience representing individuals and families in a number of elder law matters and will aggressively pursue your right to long-term care in a Medicaid fair hearing.

When to Request a Hearing

When you receive notice that you have been denied, or that your coverage has been delayed or reduced, you may request a fair hearing with the New York State Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (OTDA). If your request is approved, your fair hearing process may include the following:

  • A hearing in the presence of an administrative judge for the OTDA
  • Your argument for the need of Medicaid or continued enrollment
  • The court decision as to whether the original ruling was correct
  • A formal written response regarding the final decision, which should be sent within 90 days
