Find a local lawyer for Medicaid planning0 USER TIPS ADD YOUR TIP
When my mother needed elder care at home, we hired a lawyer to file for medicaid. I lived in the city, my mom was 100 miles away in a town, but I hired a lawyer who was local to me not her. It was costly, and worse, her application was declined because the local medicaid staff knew my mom as a local resident and thought she had means. To solve this, I found a lawyer in the same county as my mom, who knew the local staff and understood how to allay their concerns. Use a local medicaid lawyer.
