How can Medicaid4U help you and your loved one with the application process for Medicaid Benefit?
Vernon Manor and Medicard4U understands when a resident or family applies for Medicaid it is deeply personal and overwhelming. It is our goal to simplify the process for you and guide them through the Medicaid maize in order to obtain timely approvals for the facilities. Medicaid4U will act as the liaison with the nursing home, the State, and collect documents we can on your behalf; bank statements, life insurance, pension and annuities. The perspective family can contact the office or if indicated we will call them to start the process. There is a free consultation by phone and invite you to have anyone call our office. In our experience, after speaking with the family they will have a better understanding how the resident moves from rehabilitation to private pay then onto Medicaid. There is a flat fee charge that never changes regardless of issues involved or if there is a community spouse. Information will be made available as appropriate and allow you to focus on doing what is most important for you, caring for your loved one.
