Q) I have applied for Medicaid THREE times. The first two, I was told there was insufficient information. Not true, honestly.
I sent in the third one over a month and a couple of weeks ago. I have copies…sent it in via FAX…have the fax ID # if you would like.
My SS has but cut back and it was already low. Not sure why other than Medicare costs….I don’t know.
I am NOT one of the bums out there trying to get a freebie…I’ve worked hard ALL MY LIFE. I paid into SS and everything else in the world they beg and demand for.
I only live off of my SS and it is very difficult.
Would certainly like an answer.
If I get the same answer, the office is a few blocks away from me, I’ll go to the office and submit again as I know beyond any shadow of a doubt, I gave the office ALL the info required.
A) I’m sorry to hear that you’ve had difficulties applying for Medicaid. Here are some steps you can take to try to resolve the issue:
- Contact your state Medicaid agency: You can call or visit the website of your state’s Medicaid agency to get more information about your application status and to find out what additional information may be needed.
- Speak with a Medicaid caseworker: Some states have caseworkers who can assist you with your Medicaid application. You can contact your state Medicaid agency to find out if this is an option.
- File an appeal: If you have been denied Medicaid coverage, you have the right to file an appeal. The appeals process varies by state, so you will need to contact your state’s Medicaid agency to find out how to proceed.
- Get help from a Medicaid advocate: Some states have Medicaid advocates who can assist you with your application and help you navigate the appeals process. You can contact your state’s Medicaid agency to find out if this is an option.
- Consider enrolling in a Medicaid managed care plan: Some states offer Medicaid managed care plans, which can provide additional support and assistance with accessing healthcare services.
I hope these steps are helpful in getting your Medicaid application approved.
Please follow up with your local Medicaid/Social Service office on your application for Medicaid. Each state governs their Medicaid programs differently so it is very important that you know all the requirements required by your state and follow all application requirement procedures in order to determine if you qualify.
