Do I need help filling out the Medicaid application?
Just as you can do your own income taxes, you can also do your own Medicaid application. However, when income taxes become complex it is wise to seek professional help. The Medicaid application is almost always complex. Experience shows that many people who try to do the qualification process themselves run into difficulty, having problems navigating all of the rules and regulations, and wind up taking longer than necessary to complete the qualification process. Many wind up seeking professional help to straighten out the mess. It is usually the case that you will pay more for help after there is a problem than it would cost to have an expert do the job correctly from the beginning. In addition, for each month the Medicaid qualification is delayed you will pay for a month's nursing home costs.
