For families who require assistance obtaining community Medicaid for their aging loved one, Reliance offers expert application services that are proven to lead to acceptance the first time around. The cost for these services is based on a sliding-scale relative to income, ranging from being completely pro-bono to costing no more than $1,000. With eldercare lawyers charging up to $7,500 for these services, Reliance hopes to become community’s go-to application center.
Reliance is also proud to assist families in setting up Chronic Care Medicaid, which is designed for those entering a nursing home. Reliance charges between $2,500 and $3,000 for these services, with cost contingent upon the complexity of the application.
Reliance can also help families set up a pool trust for their loved one, should such measures be necessary. The charge for this service is also based on a sliding scale, with the price never exceeding $750. By making both services accessible to families of any means, Reliance strives to ensure that every elderly member of the community is covered.
Once our clients are approved for Medicaid, Reliance serves as the liaison between the patient and Maximus, scheduling the initial evaluation appointment with any special needs in mind. From there, Reliance will also coordinate any MLTC visits that need to be made to the patient’s home to determine eligibility. These enrollment services are provided completely free of charge to all patients, and our clients are typically enrolled within 2-3 months of beginning the Medicaid application process.
For patients with a pending Medicaid application, Reliance will establish Medicare coverage for bridge services through our network of trusted CHHAs. Patients can expect to receive 4-5 care hours per day during this phase of the Medicaid application process.
