Are Attorney Fees Allowed as a Part of a Medicaid Application?

Reasonable attorney fees are allowed under the statute. Allowing those attorney fees is a benefit to you because it makes it easier for you and the caseworker reviewing your application. It's our job to make sure we organize that file correctly to tell your story to the caseworker. 

This is especially important now during the pandemic when people cannot meet face to face. Having an attorney prepare your application and documents will make it so much easier for the casework to review your application. 

What about Spousal Cases?

If you or your spouse is living in a nursing home, the attorney fees will come out of the spouse's half who is living in the home. This helps them get to the $2,000 limit quicker. 

Is it Necessary to Have an Attorney?

No, but it does help. We have had clients who have tried to apply for Medicaid on their own and others who had assistance from the nursing home, who then had to come to us for an appeal. 

It is always better to start off on the right foot with someone who will ensure that every step of the application process is done so that way you don't have to worry about denial or appeal.
