Medi-Cal Eligibility Planning & Qualification Assistance

Medi-Cal Eligibility Planning Overview

There are three critical phases in Medi-Cal Eligibility Planning that must be considered and addressed when contemplating nursing home admittance:

Phase I - Eligibility Planning Development of a benefits’ eligibility strategy to insure that when and if an individual requires placement in a skilled nursing facility (SNF) he or she will meet the financial eligibility requirements at that time
Phase II - Qualification Assistance Preparation and filing of the Medi-Cal Application, and representation of the applicant/applicant’s family during the pending approval process, to include, but not limited to interfacing with the County’s case worker and appeal’s agent (if necessary) until application approval
Phase III - Estate Recovery Avoidance Insuring that no estate recovery claims or liens can be asserted against an applicant’s assets during his or her lifetime or following the applicant’s death
