Medicaid Application and Recertification
Medicaid is a program that helps with medical costs for individuals with limited income and resources. Medicaid also offers benefits not normally covered by Medicare, like home health aide assistance. For individuals with income over the Medicaid limits, you may still be eligible for assistance.
We provide guidance and assistance for those that are Medicare eligible. We will help you determine your options and what will help you meet your individual needs.
Health Care Proxy (HCP)
A Health Care Proxy is a document that appoints someone to make medical decisions for you, in the event you are unable to make them for yourself.
A living will is a document that specifies what type of medical treatments you would or would not want if you were unable to communicate. These treatments may include resuscitation, artificial nutrition and hydration and mechanical ventilation.
