Medicaid Nursing home eligibility is full of mystery. Why? because Nursing Home Medicaid has its own set of rules and those rules are different from Medicaid for food stamps, pregnancy support, cash assistance and other Medicaid programs.
Most Medicaid programs are for the poor. Not so with Nursing Home Medicaid! This can be proven with one example based upon the Medicaid Nursing home eligibility rules. Nursing Home Medicaid allows an applicant to have a home with equity of $688,000. How many poor people do you know with a home worth a total of $688,000, much less equity of $688,000? I’ll bet the answer is "none!" You can’t be poor and have that much home equity.
Therefore, there are a few points to consider:
1) Be careful who you get your Medicaid Nursing Home eligibility advice from. Nursing Home Medicaid qualification is a very specialized field. There is the advice piece and the application piece. Each is a specialty and requires an advisor that knows the rules that are specific to Medicaid for Nursing Home Care.
2) Don’t feel as though this program is welfare. Rather, this program is designed for members of “Middle America” needing Medicaid for Nursing Home Care. All but the wealthiest individuals or families will be devastated by the $10,000 to $13,000 per month nursing home bill that will need to be paid privately without Medicaid for Nursing Home Care. The proof that Medicaid for Nursing Home Care is not designed just for the poor, among other things, is the allowed home equity.
3) Regardless of the type of assets, and regardless of the value of those assets, with proper guidance, anyone can qualify for Medicaid for Nursing Home Care.
To sum things up, Medicaid Nursing Home eligibility is available to anyone who employs proper advisors and takes appropriate action! By obtaining Medicaid for Nursing Home Care, a family can truly save their assets and still obtain needed long-term care.

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!!”
