You Can Beat a County Board of Social Services When They Deny Your Medicaid Application

HNWAppealing the Denial of Medicaid, Elder Law

  • When an application for Medicaid long-term care is denied, you have a statutory right to appeal.
  • Beating a Denial of Medicaid Long Term Care by the County Board of Social Services is difficult but can be done.
  • Do not waive your right to file an Appeal of a Medicaid Denial until you consult with a Medicaid Appeal Attorney to determine whether you can successfully reverse an agency decision.

County Boards of Social Services Are Not God; You Have the Right to Appeal

I am amazed at the frequency in which the State of New Jersey and its subdivisions known as the County Board of Social Services deny applications for long term care benefits on technical grounds.   Often times, family members are sincerely trying to provide information in order to meet the requirements for approval.  The system is frustrating and difficult particularly when a parent has been secretive during their life and/or suffers from a cognitive decline and is unable to assist in filling out the application and providing the necessary information.   A recent case involved Atlantic County who denied an aged person Medicaid benefits.  The family appealed and successfully reversed the County Board of Social Services.
