Who Can Qualify For Medicaid?
Medicaid is a program typically available to individuals and families with low incomes and people with certain disabilities who cannot afford medical care. To qualify, recipients must have high medical bills, receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or meet other certain financial requirements. To qualify for the program, individuals must submit to an extensive review of their financial and medical history, and provide years of supporting documentation. You may apply yourself, or you can designate another person such as a family member or an attorney, to apply for you.
A Medicaid application in New Jersey requires a lot of time and paperwork, mistakes made in the submittal process will delay the review process which can take months.
Should An Attorney Help Me Prepare My Medicaid Application?
At SCC Legal, we routinely file and process Medicaid Applications on behalf of our clients. For most people, it is a daunting task to correctly understand and prepare five (5) years of financial asset records to meet the financial eligibility requirements of the application correctly. Then your application is submitted to an overwhelmed and adverse government agency where more often than not, it falls into a black hole.

More importantly, we have the expertise to recognize exempt and non-exempt assets that can save families tens of thousands of dollars of assets. We present our applications to the appropriate New Jersey Medicaid agencies in organized, bound volumes that assist the local agencies to make appropriate eligibility determinations.

Hiring an attorney to manage the application process gives you the added peace of mind of knowing we can represent you through any and all necessary appeals, should the government treat you unfairly.
An added bonus for those attempting to “spend down” their assets in order to qualify for Medicaid, NJ Medicaid rules allow individuals to deduct legal fees for paperwork preparation from their excess assets! Basically, this is the government acknowledging the complexity of the review process and suggesting that hiring a lawyer to navigate the process is a practice that helps both you, and them.
