Our elder law attorneys know that while it is deceptively simple in its appearance, the H1200 application for Medicaid for the Aged, Disabled or Elderly is chock full of traps for the unwary. Medicaid planning is a way to success. It is worthy to note that while MediCARE is readily available to most by virtue of attaining a certain age, MediCAID is a qualification based program. This means that in addition to meeting certain medical criteria, every aspect of the applicant’s financial situation for the last five years comes under close scrutiny to obtain eligibility for benefits. Our firm eases the applicant’s burden by performing thorough due diligence reviewing all relevant aspects of a an applicant’s family finances, completing and submitting the application along with all supporting documentation, and active tracking and communication with the Texas Health and Human Services Commission until approval is received.
