Medi-Cal Eligibility and VA Benefits

You’ll be surprised to learn that becoming eligible for Medi-Cal isn’t based solely on income.
You can also own a house and other assets and still qualify for Medi-Cal – but still be subject to Medi-Cal Estate Recovery.
Having experienced guidance can mean preventing estate recovery.
We think you’ll find a lot of wonderful resources while you’re here. If you have any questions on financial assistance, elder care, VA eligibility, or Medicaid (called “Medi-Cal” in California), including denied claims, feel free to fill out our Contact form or give us a call.
We guide our clients on Asset Protection, help with the process of getting admitted to the Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing Facilities, filling out the admission agreements (some facilities ask for signatures on forms that they cannot legally require), and following up on the application process.
Including the transfers of assets and changes in beneficiaries in order to keep the State of California Estate Recovery Unit from coming back for payments that were made on behalf of a Medi-Cal beneficiary.
Most of our new clients are unaware that they can become eligible for financial assistance through Medi-Cal/Medicaid, regardless of income.
California’s Medicaid system is known as Medi-Cal.
This is a public health insurance program that offers essential medical services to people and families with kids, elders, people with disabilities, people in foster care, pregnant women, and those with certain conditions, including HIV/AIDS, breast cancer, or tuberculosis.
State and federal governments each contribute equally to the cost of Medi-Cal.
The funds that are paid for care (on behalf of the Medi-Cal recipient) are subject to estate recovery, but they are exempt from determining eligibility. Additionally, we advise them on how to legally reposition assets and remain exempt from Estate Recovery.
We also help those who have been denied by Medi-Cal in the past – we are specialists in Appeals of denied Medi-Cal Claims.
We know it can be hard for those with aging parents while also working. We can help you find Medi-Cal approved Skilled Nursing Facilities in San Diego (if needed) and handle your Medi-Cal or VA eligibility so you can focus on helping your loved ones get better.
If you (or a loved one) have been told to move out of your current facility because your condition has plateaued, or because there are no Medi-Cal beds available, or they are only a rehab only for short term, Call Today!CALL TODAY!

VA Benefits Consultant
We help veterans & their families in California understand how to obtain long term care benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Most veterans are not aware of the benefits available through veterans health care, through state veterans homes, through home renovation grants, or for two disability income programs called Compensation and Pension.
It’s astounding that roughly 1/3 of all seniors can qualify for up to $2,050 a month in additional income through Pension under the right conditions. Pension is also known as the “aid and attendance benefit.” Yet government statistics show only 5% of potentially eligible veterans are actually receiving the Pension benefit.
This benefit can help you pay anyone including your child for home care. It can also be used to help you pay for professional care in the home, for assisted living, or for a nursing home. Imagine having an extra $2,050 a month that you didn’t even know existed.EMAIL US
