Don't navigate Medicaid alone.
As a professional social worker, my goal is to use a holistic approach to assist you and your family with the difficult process of care management.
The New York State Budget that was passed makes dramatic changes in the eligibility rules for Medicaid Home Care, which makes it more in line with rules for Medicaid nursing home care. This includes a "look back" and a penalty period imposed for any transfers of assets.
The implementation date for the new 30-month "look back" has been pushed back yet again, this time to 2024, at the earliest. While the Federal Public Health Emergency is in effect under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, States are not permitted to impose more restrictive requirements under Medicaid.
When the new "look back" is implemented, gifts or uncompensated transfers made on or after October 1, 2020 will result in a "penalty period" of ineligibility for benefits.
The focus of my career has concentrated on assisting elderly, disabled clients as well as the caregivers who have become overwhelmed with managing the care for their loved one. As a Social Worker, I am trained to assess and evaluate a client’s needs. After an in-depth assessment, I will counsel and advise you of your best options. Together we will establish a unique and safe plan, and then I will walk you through the process in a caring and compassionate manner. With my guidance I can help both the client and their loved ones feel more at ease.
The assistance I can provide encompasses all facets of case management, including the Medicaid application process, Pooled Income Trust set up, referrals to community programs and nursing home placement. If needed to better assist you, I have a working knowledge of Italian and Spanish, as well.
Certain documents must be notarized in order to have legal effect. Given the significance of legal documents that must be notarized, state governments have deemed it necessary to enlist a trained individual to assist with their execution.
As a public notary, I am authorized to carry out this service.
For a fee, I can travel to your location and provide proper execution of these important documents for you.
On a daily basis I meet with clients, caregivers, and family members who need guidance and a listening ear from a knowledgeable professional. Someone who can hold their hand and help them navigate through this process with respect, empathy, and compassion. My approach is more personal, and I consider it a privilege to be able to work directly with you and your family to make certain all your needs are met and all your questions are answered.
"Dealing with nuances of Medicaid and Social Services can be a daunting and intimidating task. I cannot say enough about the expert guidance MaryJo provided to me and my family in navigating the process of applying for Medicaid for my senior parents.
MaryJo provided start to finish service filling all paperwork, obtaining approvals, setting up a Spend Down Trust, something that is beyond a novice.
Most important, is MaryJo's caring and personal approach to this process, which was perhaps as important to me and my family as her professional knowledge. I wholeheartedly recommend MaryJo, without reservation, to anyone in need of her special services."
