RICHMOND MEDICAID LAWYERS
Coverage When You Need It Most
Following The Affordable Care Act of 2010, there has been an increase in eligibility for Medicaid coverage in various states. While the majority of Medicaid recipients in Virginia are children in low income families, there has been a surge of Medicaid coverage over the past several years for pregnant women, individuals with disabilities, and the elderly.
If you have previously applied for Medicaid and were denied, or if you are currently in the process of applying for Medicaid in Virginia, speaking with an attorney that understands the complex nature of Medicaid is vital. At Harbison & Kavanagh, our Richmond Social Security disability lawyers have over three decades of experience handling these cases and can provide you with the care and compassion that you deserve.
Verifying Your Eligibility
One of the first steps that needs to be taken when applying for Medicaid, is that you need to provide documentation that shows why you meet the criteria necessary for Medicaid. Since Medicaid is generally reserved for those of low income, you may need to provide proof of your income.
- Other forms of documentation that may be required:
- Pregnancy: If you are pregnant, you must have your pregnancy verified by a doctor prior to obtaining Medicaid benefits.
- Disabilities: If you or a loved one is disabled, you may need to contact a doctor to provide proof of your prior medical history or proof of disability.
If you have a sudden increase in income, your Medicaid benefits may be terminated prematurely. If you suddenly lose coverage and are without health insurance, you should immediately speak to a Richmond attorney who has a background handling social security and disability cases.
