You can have the power of years of Medicaid experience on your side for less than you might think. The Shea Law Firm offers Medicaid Application preparation and representation through the entire 60 day process beginning at a one-time fee of $2,500. This fee is exclusively for cases where the Applicant:

  1. is not married; and
  2. does not exceed the asset eligibility limit ($2,000); and
  3. does not exceed the income eligibility limit ($2,205 gross income); and
  4. has not made any gifts or transfers in the last 5 years that will create a penalty.

If your case does not meet all of those requirements, then I calculate the fee from the unique factors of your case including the asset protection opportunities available.

And don’t forget my personal guarantee.

The 5 Year Audit

Remember, the application is just the beginning of the eligibility process. As your family goes through the process the HHSC case worker will want additional information. Sometimes it is so much information it can feel like the equivalent to a 5 year audit of every financial transaction. The Shea Law Firm represents families through the Texas Medicaid Application and eligibility process. Call (832) 592-7913 to begin or contact me here.

Go It Alone With Your Medicaid Application?

You can download the HHSC forms. If you choose to go it alone, make sure you get everything right.

If you don’t get everything right, then you can be looking at tens of thousands of dollars in unpaid nursing home bills. You can also lose even more in missed asset protection opportunities.

Just remember, their forms do not tell you all the documentation you need to give them. They do not tell you if you are over the income limit. They do not tell you if you are over the asset limit (critical for married couples). And lastly, they do not tell you all the little tips and tricks you can use to speed up your case as well as increase your odds of winning.
