The MassHealth application process can be overwhelming and full of unexpected twists and turns for attorneys and their clients. Navigating the long and winding road to nursing home MassHealth benefits requires—not only knowledge of the complex laws and their nuances—but also an understanding of key strategies for getting your client what they need. Clients’ frequent and often dramatically changing needs add to these challenges.
This program gives practitioners a guide for traversing the MassHealth course and avoiding unnecessary pitfalls, especially during the application and appeals processes. Expert speakers highlight important timeframes, guidelines, and other logistics as they explain the MassHealth approval process. They provide detailed practical tips for managing communications between the agency, nursing home, and your client, as well as an overview of the appeal options at both the administrative and judicial levels. You also get valuable forms, lists, worksheets, sample letters and memos, and the opportunity to bring your questions to personalize your learning experience.
