New York Nursing Home Lawyers
New York Healthcare Facility and Nursing Home Representation
Our firm has an extensive track record of helping nursing homes reduce receivables. Our knowledge of government benefits and estate planning, as well as our experience working with both facilities and patients, often enable us to avert legal disputes. When litigation is unavoidable, on the other hand, we are aggressive advocates and negotiators.
We are skilled at counseling residents and their families concerning a wide range of cost-of-care issues, including those related to private pay, Medicare, insurance coverage, and application for Medicaid benefits. Our understanding of Medicaid planning enables us to resolve issues of spousal budgeting, Net Available Monthly Income (NAMI) and other related matters.
We can assist nursing homes with difficult Medicaid eligibility issues, including representation at fair hearings and negotiations with the local Medicaid agency. We can also negotiate with attorneys representing residents and family members regarding cost-of-care and Medicaid application issues. We are experienced in filing for guardianship on behalf of residents who lack the capacity to manage their own affairs and in helping to address health care issues such as emergency treatment orders.
Let us call upon our years of elder law experience, leaving you free to do what you do best: caring for seniors.
