Medicaid Applications

Medicaid Application Help in Texas

In Texas, Medicaid is the primary program that assists with the cost of Long Term Care. While the cost of Long Term Care varies from one nursing home to another, in this part of the state it usually exceeds $5,000 per month.

A patient who meets the Medicaid Eligibility requirements may be entitled to a substantial amount of assistance.  For a single patient the cost of care will not exceed their income. For a married patient the cost of care is typically lower, and, in some cases, no payment is required. Of course, the results are determined by the facts of each case.

Many folks who are seeking nursing home Medicaid assistance begin the process by filing a Medicaid Application.

Often this should not be the first step. There are financial and medical requirements that a patient must meet in order to qualify for Medicaid Assistance.

If a Medicaid application is filed and the patient does not meet all requirements for eligibility, it may be 45 days to several months before they are told they do not qualify.  While the problems can sometimes be “fixed”, the patient may have to pay $5,000 or more per month.

For many families, the opportunity to protect assets may be lost or limited if Medicaid Planning is not done before the application is filed with the state.
