Here are the main elements of this program and the essential steps that you must take to become eligible for financial aid.
· are bedridden, need assistance with caregiving, or have poor vision
· Live in an assisted living benefits or nursing home or are paying for in-home care
· Served during wartime, as mentioned by the VA
It is important to meet these requirements before starting the Aid and Attendance Benefits application.
First, sign and complete all required paperwork that is specific to the applicant or spouse’s needs, which includes providing information on financial accounts, gathering medical documents, and records of military service. Thorough documentation guarantees a seamless application.
You have to send the application to the VA once you completed the necessary paperwork.
A fast approval process depends on specialized paperwork and efficient documentation. It is important for veterans and their families to know that approval times may vary, so they must maintain patience during this period.
What has it been like working with Platinum Benefit Services?
“As a retired healthcare executive (CEO of 4 major systems over 27 years) I was unfamiliar with the significant detailed information necessary to obtain Medicaid approval (for a retired, single, sister). Your staff at Platinum, primarily Jenna Newton, was incredibly professional and proficient. I could not have received better counsel, advice, and service. Words are inadequate in expressing my gratitude to your outstanding organization. Sincerely, Ned B. Wilford”

“I was glad I found Platinum Benefits when my father needed more care than his previous facility could provide because I had no idea how to apply for Medicaid. They put me in touch with an attorney for all the legal matters and helped me with all the paperwork. It was a lot to do but worth all the time and money when Dad got approved.”
“I had no idea how to go thru the process for filing for Medicaid. I was referred to Platinum Benefit from the social worker at my Dad’s nursing home. From the time of the initial phone call all the way thru people there were wonderful. They were helpful in explaining things and walking me thru this very difficult process. Dad’s Medicaid was recently approved and while I from time to time call Platinum with questions, they always help answer them. Thank you!!”
