The processing of Medicaid applications can be inefficient for attorneys; they often must wait on long lines at the Medicaid office (or worse, mail in the application) and then have no one to follow up with if something goes wrong. These issues have become compounded by Casa no longer handling most home care cases and Certified Home Health Agencies (CHHAs) becoming much more restrictive with approving Medicaid pending services (many agencies will no longer approve Medicaid pending services at all).
As certified Medicaid Client-Representatives, we have direct access to Medicaid for submitting applications and following up with Medicaid on those applications. Most applications are approved within 2-3 weeks. If there is an issue with an application, we can call someone at Medicaid directly to get it resolved. Many attorneys use our services for processing their Medicaid applications. If you are an attorney and are interested in our services, please give us a call.
Similar to Medicaid applications, the processing of pooled income trusts can be an inefficient one for attorneys. As certified Medicaid Client-Representatives, we have direct access to the Medicaid surplus unit for the submission of pooled income trusts. In many instances, it is necessary for a patient’s Managed Long-Term Care (MLTC) plan to submit their pooled trust. We are contracted with most of the MLTC plans in NYC and are often able to assist in getting the pooled trust into the right hands to ensure that it is processed.
But simply getting the pooled trust submitted to Medicaid is hardly doing enough. Submitting the trust at the appropriate time as well as communicating with appropriate parties can make a huge difference in how quickly your client is able to access Medicaid home care services. We submit pooled trusts in line with industry best practices and in concert with the coordination of Medicaid covered home care services. These measures ensure that the pending processing of your client’s pooled trust is not an impediment to them accessing services.
Lastly, we are able to speak directly with the Medicaid office to verify that your client’s pooled income trust has actually been approved.
There is a myriad of issues that can come up with Medicaid. It is often necessary for us to speak with Medicaid directly to clarify a given case. If your client is having a Medicaid issue, we may be able to assist in diagnosing the cause of the issue and getting it resolved. Please feel free to give us a call.
If your client has Medicare (or managed Medicare – also known as Medicare Advantage) and needs home care, we can assist with obtaining care covered by insurance. These services tend to be limited both in terms of the amount of services provided and their duration. Nevertheless, they can serve as a bridge while you work on obtaining Medicaid eligibility and Medicaid level home care services for your client.
The process for obtaining home care services for clients who have Medicaid or are dual-eligible (meaning they have both Medicare and Medicaid) has become more confusing and cluttered with red-tape than ever. With Medicaid home care especially, it is now often not just “what you know” but “who you know” that can make the difference in getting your clients the care they need quickly.
We have the expertise and contacts to make certain that your clients’ cases will be processed swiftly, efficiently, and effectively. Give us a call and we will explain the process, including the steps we can take to help arrange Medicaid covered home care for your clients.
If your client needs home care services immediately, you may want see if she can receive services Medicaid pending. This means that an agency would provide your client with Medicaid level home care services while her application is being processed. Eligibility for Medicaid pending services is determined on a case-by-case basis, and not everyone who qualifies for Medicaid will be approved for Medicaid pending services. That being said, in many cases it can be a real lifesaver.
We have successfully arranged Medicaid pending home care services for many clients. If you would like your client to receive Medicaid pending services, give us a call to see if we can help.
If your client is looking for private pay home care services while you assist them in becoming eligible for Medicaid. Or, even if he is not looking for Medicaid coverage and is just looking to pay privately for home care. We can arrange private pay home care services. Give us a call today for a quote.
