  • In-Home Care Services – Medicaid

    For many people, acquiring home care services through Medicaid is essential but often fraught with hurdles. Medicaid is a lifeline for numerous families, yet its system can be difficult to navigate. Our primary goal is to ensure you get the care you need efficiently and without the stress of dealing with complex procedures.

  • Managed Long-Term Care (MLTC) Plans

    Managed Long-Term Care (MLTC) plans are designed to help those who need ongoing care but want to stay at home. If you’re unfamiliar with MLTC plans or are currently enrolled but not receiving adequate care, we can help. Our team will guide you through the process of understanding your options, choosing the right plan, and even switching plans if necessary. We aim to ensure you receive the high-quality care you deserve under your MLTC plan.

  • In-Home Care Services – Medicare

    Medicare also offers essential services for those requiring home care, but these services can come with limitations on duration and extent of care. Medicare is especially useful for those who need support after hospitalization or rehab but may fall short for long-term needs. If you’re waiting for your Medicaid application to be processed, Medicare services can be a useful temporary solution. We help you maximize these benefits to avoid unnecessary out-of-pocket expenses.

  • Applying for Medicaid

    The Medicaid application process can be daunting, with many steps and required documents. Our team of experienced case workers will assist you through each stage, from determining your eligibility to gathering and submitting documents. We aim to make the entire process as seamless as possible.

  • Eligibility Check

    First, an experienced case worker will conduct an eligibility check. This involves asking a few questions to determine your current status and what steps you need to take to become eligible if you aren’t already.

  • Application Submission

    Once you’re ready to apply, your case worker will provide a detailed list of required documents. You’ll need to gather these documents and provide them to us. From that point, we handle everything—submitting your application, following up, and monitoring its status. Typically, applications are approved within 4-5 weeks. Our involvement doesn’t end there; we continue to keep you updated on your application’s progress.

  • Application Starter Packets

    If you’re unsure about where to begin, you can request one of our application starter packets. These packets contain detailed information about the Medicaid application process, helping you understand what to expect and how to prepare. Your case worker will happily send this packet to you upon request.

  • Getting Care During Application Processing

    Waiting for your Medicaid application to process doesn’t mean you have to go without care. You may be eligible to receive temporary home care services similar to those covered by Medicaid while your application is pending. However, not all cases qualify for this interim care. Your case worker will help you determine if you’re eligible for these services and guide you through the process to ensure you receive the care you need as soon as possible.

  • Pooled Income Trusts

    If your income exceeds the limits set by Medicaid, you might be required to “spend down” your income to qualify for benefits. A pooled income trust can help you navigate this issue by allowing you to use your excess income to pay for approved bills, ensuring you remain eligible for Medicaid.

  • Setting Up a Pooled Income Trust

    Setting up a pooled income trust involves several steps, including confirming a proven disability. Our team will guide you through each step, ensuring you have all the required documents. Once everything is in order, we submit the necessary paperwork to Medicaid for approval and closely monitor the status of your application.

  • How It Works

    Think of a pooled income trust as a special account where you deposit your excess income. This money can only be used to pay for approved bills and cannot be withdrawn as cash. When you have bills to pay, you send them to the trust, which then issues the payment directly to the biller. This ensures that your income is used appropriately, keeping you within Medicaid’s income limits.

  • Medicaid-Related Issues

    Navigating Medicaid can sometimes lead to complications. Whether you’re facing issues with confusing codes, uncertain application status, or denial of benefits, we are here to help. We provide guidance on how to address these issues effectively, ensuring you receive the care and support you need.

  • Long-Term Care Claims

    Dealing with long-term care insurance can be confusing and complex. We simplify the process by offering guidance through each step, from understanding your claim requirements to gathering necessary documentation. Once your claim is approved, we can also assist with billing your long-term care insurer, ensuring you receive your benefits without unnecessary hassle.

  • Veterans’ Aid and Attendance (A&A) Pensions

    Veterans who require home care may qualify for Aid-and-Attendance (A&A) pensions. These pensions can significantly offset the costs of home care. If you think you might be eligible, we can guide you through the process of determining your eligibility and applying for these benefits.

  • Private Pay Home Care Services

    For those who either prefer to pay for home care services themselves or are waiting for Medicaid coverage to begin, we offer private pay options. Our services are tailored to meet your unique needs, ensuring you receive the highest quality care possible. Contact us for a personalized quote and a bespoke care plan that aligns with your requirements.
