Applying for Medicaid
Medicaid is a needs-based public assistance program. People who properly apply and qualify for Medicaid can use these benefits to cover the high cost of a skilled nursing home or at home care.
Timing is one of the most important parts of the rigorous Medicaid application process. When to apply for Medicaid benefits is as important, or perhaps even more important, than how to carefully complete the application. We discuss the crucial consideration of timing when applying for Medicaid benefits in our article, Medicaid ICP Enrollment for Nursing Home Care.
