Taking Care Of Your Future Medical Needs Starts Today

The cost of long-term care could potentially wipe out a lifetime of savings and hard work. Medicaid can help bridge the gap between medical expenses and private insurance. At Korsinsky & Klein LLP, we support individuals and their families as they plan for their future needs and pursue the best possible care.

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. Your age, income, savings and other factors can quickly disqualify you from obtaining Medicaid benefits. You can avoid these issues through appropriate estate plans, trusts and disability planning. You need to prepare today for your long-term care to prevent unexpected eligibility issues.

If you are approved for Medicaid, the government program can provide:

  • Emergency medical care
  • Hospital inpatient and outpatient care
  • Routine medical care and health care support
  • Long-term care in a home agency or nursing facility
  • Medical supplies
  • Transportation to and from medical appointments

Medicaid provides medical assistance to low-income individuals, specifically those who are 65 years or older, disabled or blind. We have helped many New Yorkers with their Medicaid applications and can help you do the same.

You May Need A Medicaid Fair Hearing

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

  • You were ruled ineligible for Medicaid.
  • Your Medicaid coverage was denied, suspended, reduced or stopped.
  • Your Medicaid request was delayed, or you received no response.

You will receive a letter detailing the reason for the denial or suspension. You should bring that letter to us so we can investigate your case. We will work with the administration that handles Medicaid, and we will ensure that your application is completed properly.

Make Your Medicaid Needs Clear

Applying for Medicaid can be complex and intensive. Our experienced and compassionate elder law attorneys can help you through the application process, “look-back” waiting periods, appeals of Medicaid denial and more. Call Korsinsky & Klein LLP, today at 212-257-0199 or contact us online to get started on your Medicaid application. You deserve the best possible medical treatment so that you can enjoy the pleasures of life.
