Welcome to Homecare Advisory Group, where we offer vital assistance to attorneys in New York City seeking Medicaid and home care services for their clients. We understand the complexities involved in navigating these processes and provide critical guidance and support. Our services are offered free of charge, backed by a history of compassionate and reliable care. Whether you’re dealing with Medicaid applications, pooled income trusts, Medicare services, or private pay home care, we are here to help you and your clients every step of the way.

  • Medicaid Applications

    Managing Medicaid applications can be one of the most cumbersome tasks for attorneys. Typically, this process involves long wait times at the Medicaid office and a lack of communication, making it a burdensome and often frustrating task. The situation has exacerbated because Casa is no longer managing most home care cases, and Certified Home Health Agencies (CHHAs) have become much stricter about approving Medicaid-pending services. In fact, many agencies have now stopped approving Medicaid-pending services altogether.

    At Homecare Advisory Group, we act as Certified Senior Care Advisors, capable of managing and submitting Medicaid applications directly. We typically see most applications get approved within 2-3 weeks. In case there are any errors or issues with an application, we can contact Medicaid directly to resolve these issues promptly.

    Our expertise in managing these processes ensures that attorneys can focus on their core responsibilities without having to worry about the intricacies involved in Medicaid applications. A significant number of attorneys rely on our services for efficiently managing their Medicaid applications. If you are an attorney and need our assistance, please contact us.

  • Pooled Income Trusts

    Similar to Medicaid applications, the process of handling pooled income trusts can be quite lengthy and complex for lawyers. Our team at Homecare Advisory Group has a direct line to the Medicaid surplus unit, which allows us to submit these trusts efficiently. Sometimes, a client’s Managed Long-Term Care (MLTC) plan needs to submit the pooled trust, and fortunately, we are contracted with most MLTC plans in New York City to ensure this process is seamless.

    It’s important to understand that merely submitting the pooled trust to Medicaid is not sufficient. The timing and communication with the appropriate parties play a crucial role in determining how quickly your client can access Medicaid home care services. We follow established industry best practices and work in close coordination with Medicaid-covered home care services to ensure that the submission of your client’s pooled trust does not delay their access to necessary services.

    Furthermore, we can contact the Medicaid office directly to verify the approval of your client’s pooled income trust, thereby ensuring that the entire process is fast-tracked and efficient.

  • Medicaid-Related Issues

    Medicaid-related issues can vary widely and often arise unexpectedly, creating significant stress for both clients and their attorneys. Addressing these issues promptly and effectively is crucial for ensuring that your clients receive the benefits they are entitled to.

    At Homecare Advisory Group, we are skilled at identifying and resolving a range of Medicaid-related issues. Whether it’s a problem with benefit eligibility, coverage denials, or any other complication, we can act quickly to investigate and resolve the issue. We can communicate directly with Medicaid authorities to clarify specific situations and find solutions. If your client is encountering Medicaid-related problems, we are here to help. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for assistance.

  • In-Home Care Services – Medicare

    If your client is covered by Medicare – including managed Medicare or Medicare Advantage – and requires home care, we can provide the assistance they need. Medicare home care services come with certain restrictions on the amount and duration of care provided. Despite these limitations, Medicare services can serve as a valuable temporary option, particularly for clients who are awaiting the approval of their long-term Medicaid applications. Our team can help you navigate these Medicare services to ensure that your clients get the care they need without unnecessary delays.

  • In-Home Care Services – Medicaid

    Acquiring home care services for clients who are covered by Medicaid, or those who are dual-eligible with both Medicaid and Medicare, has become an increasingly complicated and challenging task. Securing Medicaid home care services not only requires a thorough understanding of the policies but also a strong network of contacts who can expedite the process.

    At Homecare Advisory Group, we have both the expertise and the connections necessary to ensure that your clients’ cases are processed in the most efficient and effective manner possible. We have developed a strong network within the Medicaid system and have a deep understanding of the nuances involved in securing home care services.

    We invite you to reach out to us. We will walk you through the process step-by-step and outline the specific actions we can take to help arrange Medicaid-covered home care for your clients quickly and smoothly. Our goal is to minimize the time and stress involved, ensuring that your clients receive the care they need as soon as possible.

  • Getting Care During Application Processing – Medicaid

    For clients who require immediate home care services while waiting for their Medicaid application to be processed, there is an option for accessing Medicaid-pending services. These services allow clients to receive home care similar to what Medicaid covers during the application review period.

    Approval for Medicaid-pending services greatly depends on the specific circumstances of each case, and not all cases are approved. However, for clients who qualify, these services can provide critical support during a time of need.

    Our team at Homecare Advisory Group has successfully assisted many clients in obtaining Medicaid-pending home care services. We know the process inside out and can guide you through it, helping you secure the necessary care for your clients while they await the final decision on their Medicaid applications. If you need help with this, please reach out to us.

  • Private Pay Home Care Services

    There are instances where clients may prefer or need to pay for home care services out of pocket. This can be the case while waiting for Medicaid coverage or by choice, without applying for Medicaid. Regardless of the situation, we can assist in setting up private pay home care services.

    We offer personalized quotes based on the unique needs of your clients, ensuring that they receive top-quality care that fits within their budget. Our goal is to make the process as smooth and stress-free as possible, providing peace of mind for both you and your clients.
