Pending Medicaid Appeals: What You Need to Know

At Richard A. Myers Jr. and Associates, we are here to help our clients by providing them with the knowledge they need for estate planning, Medicaid planning, veteran benefits, and more. 

In today's blog, we are addressing an issue that many people in Ohio have faced while applying for Medicaid.

Can a Facility Discharge During a Medicaid Appeal?

In short, the answer is no; a facility cannot legally discharge you during a Medicaid appeal. Whether you have an application pending or if you are appealing a denial, that facility cannot kick you out. 

What About Appealing a Medicaid Denial Error?

It is not uncommon for a Medicaid application to be denied because of errors. Up until recently, there was no law in place to cover whether a facility could discharge a patient if they were appealing an error made by a caseworker during the application process. 

We had a client who was dealing with this exact case, and we were fighting for their right to stay in their facility. We can't possibly anticipate every error that a caseworker can make. So, the intent was to protect when there are errors made. The judge agreed, and he changed the law in the state of Ohio. Now, if there's a legitimate error made by a caseworker, you're protected.
