If You Apply for Adult Medicaid, the County Board of Social Services Must Inform You of Its Application Requirements

HNWApplying for Medicaid Long Term Care Benefits, Elder Law

New Jersey’s Medicaid guidebook requires that an agency representative must provide an applicant or his/her representative with a “checklist” highlighting the verification(s) and supporting documentation required to process the Medicaid application.”   Medicaid Communication No. 10-09.

If the requested information is not supplied within a reasonable timeframe provided in the notice, the county agency “must” send the applicant or their representative “an additional request for information” detailing “what documentation is still needed in order to determine eligibility.” The second request must advise “that if the information is not received within the specified time period from the receipt of the request, the case will be denied”.  The counties are getting really strict with their deadlines for providing requested information and denials are becoming more frequent.
