We focus our practice on helping potential applicants qualify for the California Medicaid/California Long-Term Care System, commonly known as CLTCS. Anybody applying for LTCS should understand that the denial rate is approximately 73 percent. Our Law Firm is an invaluable asset to applicants looking to obtain approval for the benefit with as little delay and paperwork hassle as possible. The Hedtke Law Firm is familiar with LTCS rules and regulations, and will be able to use this knowledge to help applicants be as certain as possible that LTCS will approve their application. Long-term care can cost more than $7,000 per month and the application process is lengthy and cumbersome. Using our knowledgeable staff to help ensure eligibility can save applicants many months of health care expenses and unnecessary stress and worry.
LTCS applicants are denied benefits for one of three reasons: They have too many resources, they have too much monthly income, or they do not qualify medically for the benefit. The Hedtke Law Firm has tools available to help many applicants overcome each of these obstacles and can prepare an individualized strategy to help applicants get their resources within the allowable limit. Regarding the issues related to income, there are legal devices that can be prepared and established to bring an applicant’s income within the allowable limit.
