We always get a question when we do one of our educational seminars about not being qualified for Medicaid when I go into a Nursing Home. I was told I would not qualify because, I make too much money, I own too much property, I have too much money, or I gave my house away to my children. In many instances all those reason would cause a person to not be qualified, However, there are many exceptions and rules in place that will allow you to become qualified but you must take action and follow the laws. In many cases is not if you can become qualified but when.
Getting answers from the right person, who knows and understands the rules and laws that surround the Medicaid qualification process in Texas will be able to explain the process and how you could get qualified and when. We have completed thousands of applications and have run across many different situations and in many cases people just don't know what to do before they come in and seat down with us. We believe in education and giving people the options on what to do, what not to do and then they can make educated decisions about their own family and situations. Medicaid can be a very difficult process to go thru and scary when you look at the costs that come with dealing with health issues and care options. We want to give our clients the knowledge about how the law and their healthcare needs interconnect.
The qualification process generally deals with knowing the laws that effect Medicaid. The rules/laws are different from IRS law, to individual State's laws, VA rules, and Medicaid laws, because laws are always changing and it does deal with many different laws and rules, getting the information from Elder Law Attorney who deals with this on daily basis should be your main resource.
