What is Arizona Medicaid Crisis Planning? We define it as a situation where an individual has either been admitted to a nursing home, or must enter one in the near future, and been informed that he or she has too many assets to qualify for assistance from Medicaid. It is considered a crisis situation because the high cost of nursing home care can quickly deplete a family’s life savings. For many families, paying for nursing home care without some form of assistance from Medicaid is a financial catastrophe.
What you must understand is that the information provided by well-meaning friends and family about Medicaid eligibility is often incorrect. Even social workers and nursing home personnel may be mistaken about your ability to obtain Medicaid assistance. Laws governing eligibility for Medicaid are extremely complicated and continuously changing. We understand these laws and can use a variety of tools and strategies to help you qualify for Medicaid assistance.
