Am I Eligible For Medicaid?

A nursing home can cost $15,000 to $20,000 a month, quickly draining the hard-earned life savings and assets of an individual. With proper planning, you can protect your assets and be prepared when and if you should need long-term care.

The attorneys at the Law Offices of Valerie A. Shivers are here to answer your questions, ease your concerns, and make the process as efficient and effective as possible. Call our offices in Garden City and Sayville at 631-438-1965.

What Is A Look-Back Period?

Your Medicaid eligibility for nursing home coverage will partially depend on what the Department of Social Services sees when they review your assets and income. From the month of your application, the look-back period in New York is currently five years.

How Long Does It Take For A Medicaid Application To Process?

The process for Medicaid approval varies based upon your financial circumstance. With our assistance, we can ensure your assets are transferred and protected. We work diligently to ensure that the application process from start to finish moves in an efficient and expeditious manner.
