Our initial consultation is completely free of cost. Our experts meet with families one on one to complete a thorough review of all income and assets. We then create a clear plan outlining what your Medicaid application process will involve.
We then begin to request and gather all of the necessary paperwork and financial statements. Depending on the complexity of the case, this process can take a few weeks. Our team is trained to spot and collect each document that is required for the application to be approved. If there is any documentation that we cannot obtain, we will partner with you to guide you through requesting the information.
Once all the documentation is gathered and all the financial records have been reviewed and verified, the application form must be filled out. Our team members fill every line and check every box so that the application can be properly admitted.
In some cases, the application submission via mail is not enough to get approved for Medicaid coverage. The state can require a face-to-face meeting with a Medicaid case worker at the Board of Social Services. This can be time-consuming and exhausting. If this should be required a Silver Key team member will represent you at the meeting so that you don’t have to take time out of your busy schedule.
Our team members are in consistent contact with the Medicaid case workers so they can move the application along as smoothly as possible. Applications left on their own may not get approved quickly and efficiently. Like babies, they need constant care and attention.
If you or a loved one is currently residing in or needs long-term care, preparing to apply for Medicaid coverage is essential. The average cost to live in a facility is between $6,000 to $12,000 a month. Applying for Medicaid should be simple, but unfortunately, it’s not.
The Medicaid application process is a daunting one.It is complex, tedious, and it requires vast amounts of paperwork and documentation. Families must know every detail of the applicant’s financial history for the past 5 years! Not only must they know about every property, asset, account and holding, they must be able to verify the source of each deposit and withdrawal that was made during that time frame.
On top of that, Medicaid guidelines are constantly changing, and only those intimately acquainted with the system can be confident that they will satisfy the correct application criteria. Medicaid is nothing if not meticulous; even one small error or omission can result in a delayed approval, a penalty, or worse a denial. These unfortunate situations often cost thousands of dollars.
