If You Apply for Adult Medicaid Long Term Care Services, the County Board of Social Services Must Inform You of Its Application Requirements

HNW Applying for Medicaid Long Term Care Benefits, Elder Law

By Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq. of Hanlon, Niemann & Wright, a Freehold Township, Monmouth County NJ Medicaid Application Attorney

New Jersey’s Medicaid Communication guide book requires that during the initial face-to-face meeting between a County Welfare Agency representative and a Medicaid applicant, the agency representative must provide the applicant or his/her representative with a “checklist/missing information highlighting verification(s) and supporting documentation required to process the Medicaid application.”   Medicaid Communication No. 10-09.

Where the requested information is not supplied within the timeframe provided in the initial notice, the County Welfare Agency “must” send the applicant or their representative “an additional request for information” detailing “what documentation is still needed in order to determine eligibility.” The second request must advise “that if the information is not received within the specified time period from the receipt of the request, the case will be denied”.

Don’t be shy in demanding the County comply with mandated notice requirements.
