Do You Need NJ
Medicaid Legal Assistance?
Written by Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq. of Hanlon Niemann & Wright, a New Jersey Medicaid Attorney
Some people can file a Medicaid application on their own. Others cannot or should not because of legal and/or other issues they are not even aware of. I have prepared a test to determine whether or not professional assistance is needed in preparing and filing a New Jersey Medicaid Application. Read each question slowly and carefully and be as honest in your answers as possible.
- Do I know the location of the Medicaid office where the application must be filed?
- Am I familiar with all of the documentation that must accompany the filing of a Medicaid Application?
- Am I familiar with the Medicaid laws regarding spend down and do I have sufficient documentation to prove that the spend down in this case was proper?
- Am I familiar with the NJ Medicaid law regarding transfers of assets?
- Do I have sufficient documentation to support the fact that the transfer of assets were properly done?
- Do I have the 30-40+ hours that it is estimated that preparing and filing a Medicaid Application will take?
- If the New Jersey Medicaid eligibility worker asks questions, do I understand the process sufficiently to give the answers, which will not hurt me or the Medicaid Applicant?
- Do I know what pre-admission screening is and how it applies to filing a Medicaid application?
- If the Medicaid Application is rejected, am I familiar with the rules for filing for a Fair Hearing?
- If the NJ Medicaid Application is not rejected but not approved, am I familiar with my rights and the procedures for obtaining prompt action?
- Do I know how to deal with the nursing home or other facility while they are not being paid during the pendency of the Medicaid Application and do I know how much I must pay them every month until Medicaid is approved?
