Doing it Alone
Some people can file a Medicaid application on their own. Others cannot or should not because of legal and/or other issues they are not even aware of. I have prepared a test to determine whether professional assistance is needed in preparing and filing your Medicaid application. Read each question slowly and carefully and be as honest in your answers as possible.
- Do I know the location of the Medicaid office where the application must be filed?
- Am I familiar with all the documentation that must accompany the filing of a Medicaid application?
- Am I familiar with the Medicaid laws regarding spend down and do I have sufficient documentation to prove that the spend down in my case is proper?
- Am I familiar with the NJ Medicaid law regarding gifts, uncompensated transfers of assets and other issues that may affect my eligibility?
- Do I have enough documentation to support the fact that the transfer of assets was properly done? If not, do I know what to do?
- Do I have the 40+ hours that it is estimated to take preparing, filing and following to conclusion a Medicaid application?
- If the eligibility case worker asks questions, do I understand the process sufficiently to give him/her the correct and appropriate answers, which will not hurt me or the Medicaid applicant?
- Do I know what a pre-admission screening is and how it applies to filing a Medicaid application?
- If the Medicaid application is rejected, am I familiar with the time limits and rules for filing an appeal and requesting a Fair Hearing?
- If my NJ Medicaid application is not rejected but not approved and I’m being “jerked around”, am I familiar with my rights and the procedures for obtaining prompt action?
- Do I know how to deal with the nursing home or other facility while they are not being paid during the pendency of the Medicaid Application and do I know how much I must pay them every month until Medicaid is approved?
