I sent it back about 3 weeks ago certified return receipt at post office with date, but they claim the information requested was not provided. I fax everything I get from them to an Elder Law firm I’ve been working with..Mom is at home and 91 yo...it’s Medicaid Homecare....& application first sent 15 months ago!!! Everyone says it should’ve taken no more than 1-3 months!!! I paid so much $$$ to Lawyer when I decided to switch from nursing home application to home care since I discharged her from nursing home March 2017. I applied also for CDPAP program to be paid when Medicaid approval came through, but now they asked to fill in date, which I DID & still they denied!!! I just had a feeling with all the delay games they were playing & looking for excuse. Meanwhile I’ve been paying out of pocket for everything: Home care, incontinent supplies, & I’m now taking on more days caregiving in addition to overnights...I could just cry but what is that going to accomplish? 13 months of playing paper games: faxing record keeping, sending everything to Lawyer all for nothing....what a waste of time for nothing. I stay home to take care of mom & I feel like I was punched in stomach today.
....try to get the one person who really cares..... to assist you.... this may be difficult but... stay calm I drove them nuts with kindness and patience then if I had,an issues I had a log of all the issues that made them look so stupid....
... when you..... Call or go to the office speak with patience and explain your situation. This actually worked for me.
Medicaid is retroactive to the date of application, isn't it?
Is the eldercare attorney that you're working with certified in this area, i.e., Naela or CELA certified?
What was the reason given for denial?
