What is Medicaid?
Medicaid is a government program that provides assistance to someone who is not able to pay for their medical care. If someone is eligible for the program, Medicaid helps with the cost of necessary medical and hospital services, including the cost of assisted living facilities or long-term nursing care. The Medicaid laws are known as some of the most complicated laws in the United States because they are frequently evolving and every state has their own procedure of applying the law to its residents.
Why do I Need a Medical Assistance Planning Attorney?
In Wisconsin, federal Medicaid benefits are administered under that state’s program known as Medical Assistance. To receive eligibility for Wisconsin’s Medical Assistance program, an individual’s income and assets are evaluated. Also taken into account are the assets of the applicant’s spouse. Because the Medicaid laws are so convoluted, application papers can become confusing very quickly. Improperly handled applications can result in denial of benefits for the individual, so it is very important to seek counsel from an Elder Law Attorney who is knowledgeable in such matters.
