Denied for Medicaid - Now What?

By attyshea


Applying for Connecticut Title 19 Medicaid benefits can be tricky. Some of the questions on the application may seem straightforward while others may seem downright confusing. Assuming you submit a completed application for Connecticut Title 19 Medicaid benefits what happens after you have been denied?

A lot of people are denied for Connecticut Medicaid benefits after their initial application. The reason why their application is denied could be any number of reasons. In some cases the application is incomplete or inaccurate. In some cases assets may be attributed to the applicant when they should not be. In some cases you may be entitled to Connecticut Medicaid benefits but the way the system is set up, it is just not within the power of the case worker to approve your application. This last case is very common with married couples.

Whatever the reason, if you have been denied Medicaid benefits the clock starts ticking. You can accept the decision and spend down your assets, perhaps more than you need to; or you can appeal the decision and request a hearing. If you plan to appeal, you only have a limited amount of time. At the appeal stage you are facing a hearing with an administrative law judge that will base their decision to approve or deny your application on their interpretation of the relevant laws and administrative regulations. A Connecticut Medicaid Attorney can represent you and help present your case at this hearing.
