Navigating through the many rules and regulations of Medicaid can often be a stressful time for families. The application process itself can be one of the biggest hurdles to overcome. It’s with this in mind that Fraser Trebilcock attorney Melisa Mysliwiec recently shared key insights with other attorneys in Michigan. The presentation, titled Completing the Medicaid Application: a Hands-On Workshop, was delivered at the Institute for Continuing Legal Education’s 3rd Annual Elder Law Institute, on Friday, September 15.
The seminar provided attendees with a case study about a husband and wife, second marriage, navigating the long-term care process after husband had a massive stroke requiring his admission to a nursing facility. Sample income and financial statements were provided and the attendees worked through a sample Assets Declaration. Finally, attendees worked through a sample spend down and completed a sample Medicaid Application.
Melisa, along with Rosemary Howley Buhl, Arthur L. Malisow, Charles S. Ofstein, and Terrence G. Quinn, answered questions and provided thorough advice on each step in the process. The well over 100 attendees were able to walk away with a completed sample Medicaid Application.
