If you have applied for Medicaid (or for a change in benefits) for yourself or on behalf of a family member and received a denial, you have the right to appeal. A Medicaid lawyer can help if your application is denied or is not handled in a timely manner, or if there is a dispute over benefit amounts, payments, or other problems. Having an experienced lawyer representing you can give you peace of mind in knowing the process will be handled competently.
The Medicaid lawyers at Pierro, Connor & Strauss, LLC are here to assist with applications, appeals, and related issues like the amount of hours awarded in a Community Medicaid case.
The Medicaid Denial Process
Your application could be denied for countless reasons. No matter what the alleged cause, the Medicaid program is required, under federal law, to inform you of its decision, and the reasons for it, in writing, and to provide a method to appeal the decision.
