For those hoping to qualify for nursing home Medicaid and are looking for assistance with the application process, it is important to recognize that the state is not always the best resource for application assistance.  Often times, private medicaid planners are in a better position to counsel individuals on their Medicaid eligibility.

Please note that since nursing home Medicaid is administered at the state level, many states refer to their Medicaid programs using alternative names.  In addition to the alternative names,  the rules in each state can vary significantly.

To apply for nursing home Medicaid you will have to:

  1. Fill out an application form

  2. Provide documentation to verify general and financial requirements

  3. Complete form and establish medical necessity for care.

  4. Complete form to validate the cost of care .

  5. Submit a fully developed application package to the VA.

Be cautious if intending to file by yourself. Our professionals have the experience to know exactly what you need so that your application won’t be denied.
