Should I let the nursing home employee or social worker complete my Medicaid application for me?
No, we do NOT recommend letting a nursing home employee or case worker complete your Medicaid application. Filing the application at the wrong time or with the wrong information can be catastrophic. Both the nursing home and the Medicaid department just want you to complete the application as quickly as possible. This will usually result in unnecessarily spending almost all of your money on nursing home expenses before you can receive Medicaid benefits.
