Some individuals are beginning to have difficulty with managing their own bill paying. While struggling to remain in charge for as long as possible, assistance with timely bill paying and check balancing procedures can be of critical importance. For these individuals, Elder Life Management provides home-based account management services. They meet in the client's home and assist with financial management issues. This way, clients are still in control and in charge of their affairs.
Applying for Medicaid can be a complicated and lengthy process. Families may become frustrated dealing with the rules and regulations of the bureaucracy of government agencies. Most importantly, should the Medicaid application not be completed on a timely basis, there could be a gap before Medicaid begins to pay the health care facility. The family may be financially responsible under these circumstances.
Assistance is available from Elder Life Management. In addition to providing information and guidance about the Medicaid process, their services can include collecting the required information and documentation, making the actual application and follow through to final approval.
