Q) I am asking who I must contact to obtain MEDICAID assistance for a stroke victim who fell and broke a hip bone. He is presently in a hospital,but we are not able to adequately care for him at home. He is also a diabetic.
A) I understand that you are in a difficult situation. It sounds like your loved one is in need of significant medical care, and you are not able to provide that care at home. I am happy to help you find the resources you need.
The first step is to contact your state’s Medicaid office. You can find the contact information for your state’s Medicaid office on the Medicaid website. When you contact your state’s Medicaid office, you will need to provide some basic information about your loved one, such as their name, date of birth, and Social Security number. You will also need to provide information about their income and assets.
Once you have provided this information, your state’s Medicaid office will be able to determine if your loved one is eligible for Medicaid. If your loved one is eligible for Medicaid, they will be able to receive the medical care they need.
In addition to Medicaid, there are other resources that may be able to help your loved one. You may want to contact your local Area Agency on Aging (AAA). The AAA can provide information about services that are available to seniors and people with disabilities. You may also want to contact your local United Way. The United Way can provide information about a variety of social services that are available in your community.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
