If you or your loved one receives Medicaid nursing home or home care benefits, they are now required to file a Medicaid recertification application each year in order to maintain eligibility for Medicaid benefits.
This is a return to regular Medicaid procedures now that the COVID Public Health Emergency has been deemed concluded. As such, all Medicaid recipients will receive a renewal notice and MUST comply by submitting all information and documentation requested by the due date stated on the notice or risk coming off the Medicaid roster and losing all benefits.
What can you do to protect your benefits:
Prepare in advance!
Contact the award-winning Medicaid Team at Cona Elder Law to prepare and submit your recertification application.
