Overview

This Medicaid book is a step-by-step guide for applying for Medicaid for nursing home payment. Who's going to pay for those nursing home expenses? The parent/spouse is sick, too sick to stay at home, has to be placed in a nursing home, yet there are no funds to pay for it. Also, an issue, which compounds the problem, is most nursing homes want a source of payment before admitting a patient.

Medicaid EZ has a listing by state of all the Medicaid offices. If your parent lives in Florida and you live in California, Medicaid EZ will explain what is required to apply for Medicaid, and direct you to the appropriate Medicaid office in the state where your parents live.

Medicaid EZ specifically speaks to the patient and their families in understandable terms. Medicaid EZ will explain in detail how to apply and complete a Medicaid application. It will tell what documentation is needed, give an explanation of income and resources, and discuss rights and responsibilities. It will give a description of penalties if assets have been given away, and explain how much must be contributed to pay for their cost of care each month, etc.
