Medicaid Assistance in New Jersey
At Shah & Associates, P.C., our Elder Law Center focuses on Elder Law and Estate Planning to ensure that we adequately protect New Jersey families and their futures. Our goal is to ensure that they are guarded from the increasing costs of nursing home care. In a typical situation, a monthly nursing home bill can cost close to ten thousand dollars and quickly consume one’s life savings. As your New Jersey Elder Law attorneys, we can carefully guide you through each step of the process to ensure that you receive the proper care you deserve.
Eligibility Requirements for Medicaid
Medicaid covers specific groups, regardless of income. You must be either a United States citizen or a lawfully admitted immigrant to qualify for Medicaid coverage. Only people who meet one of the following classifications can qualify for Medicaid:
- 65 years or older
- Parent of a minor
- Legal guardian of a minor
- Independent teenager
Income eligibility is also a major factor for assistance under Medicaid. Eligibility is based on the federal poverty line but this does not mean you have to be under the poverty line in order to become qualified for federal benefits. With the help of a qualified attorney, you may become eligible for benefits even if you have more than these limits. During a case evaluation, we can help assess whether you qualify for Medicaid coverage.
