Medicaid Planning, Applications and Appeals of Benefit Denials

Medicaid Applications and Planning

Applying for Medicaid does not have to be a stressful process. Mr. Abraham has years of experience successfully and smoothly assisting clients through the planning and application process.

Proper representation includes the development and implementation of Medical Assistance plans to preserve assets.


Medicaid Applications

When appropriate, the plans include the completion and filing of the Medical Assistance application.

Representation will then continue up to when the applicant is granted eligibility into Maryland’s Medical Assistance program. When necessary, Medical Assistance applications may result in litigation in the form of an appeal.

Medicaid Appeals

Denial of Medical Assistance (Medicaid) benefits often does not signify the end of an application process. Applications are commonly denied for improper reasons. Applicants have the right to appeal a denial when they believe the rejection is incorrect. Additionally, the local Department of Social Services does not always process Medical Assistance applications in a timely manner. When this occurs, an appeal can be filed to preserve an application.

When necessary, Mr. Abraham also files appeals as a component of continuing Medicaid representation. On occasion, he is retained for the sole purpose of filing appeals on the denial of Medicaid.
