North Carolina Medicare & Medicaid Lawyers
Helping You Navigate the Complexities of the Medicare & Medicaid Systems
The requirements for receiving Medicare and Medicaid are confusing to most people. If you need help with a Medicaid or Medicare issue, Lanier Law Group can help you navigate the complexities of the system. Our compassionate and experienced North Carolina Medicare/Medicaid lawyers realize that these programs are anything but straightforward. We are here to answer your questions, provide you with personalized guidance tailored to your unique situation, and represent your best interests every step of the way.
What Is Medicare?
Medicare is a federal health insurance program designed for individuals 65 or older and for younger people with certain disabilities, including end-stage renal disease. We have extensive experience helping our clients with a variety of Medicare issues, as well as Social Security disability (SSD).
Perhaps the most important thing you should be aware of is that if you qualify for SSD benefits, you automatically receive Medicare two years after the first month you are eligible for SSD benefits. If your claim for benefits is denied, however, you will need to work with a qualified legal team in order to file an appeal. Our lawyers may be able to help you file an appeal.
What Is Medicaid?
Medicaid is a health insurance program financed by both the federal government and state governments. It is designed for low-income people. Not everyone who applies for Medicaid qualifies.
In order to qualify for Medicaid in North Carolina, you must:
- Be a resident of North Carolina
- Have low income
You must also be one of the following:
If you are not pregnant, blind, or disabled, you may still qualify if you:
- Have a disabled family member in your home
- Are the parent or guardian of a child younger than 19
- Are 65 years of age or older
If you are unsure of whether you are eligible to receive Medicare or Medicaid, you should speak to a knowledgeable lawyer. Our North Carolina Medicare and Medicaid attorneys can review your case and advise you of your options. We are willing to sit down in any of our many offices and walk you through the most common reasons for claim denials when it comes to SSDI and Medicare/Medicaid.
