Medicaid And Nursing Home Placement Guidance

Most nursing homes send Medicaid patients to the back of the line, because they can charge private patients more. However, federal law requires a portion of the beds in any Medicaid participating nursing home to be occupied by Medicaid patients. We can determine which nursing homes need to reach that threshold, making them more likely to accept a patient who may soon be eligible for Medicaid.

If your loved one is on Medicaid, we can help find the right home for him or her.

Finding The Best Facility For Your Loved One

Nursing homes vary widely in the care they provide. In addition, many nursing homes cater to certain populations, such as religious affiliations, fraternal organizations and ethnic groups. The right home can provide your loved one with the physical care he or she needs, and provide an emotionally nurturing environment.

The right home is waiting for your loved one somewhere in New York or New Jersey. The Manna Helmy Law Group will help you find it.
