Warwick Medicaid Attorneys Advocate for Your Eligibility

Our Rhode Island lawyers help clients get medical care

Unlike Medicare, which is an insurance program, Medicaid is an assistance program. Administered by state and local governments under federal guidelines, Medicaid provides tax dollars to assist low income people of every age with their medical bills. While Medicaid has stringent requirements for eligibility, those rules have a plethora of exceptions. Individuals facing long-term nursing home stays may use exceptions in the law to receive government assistance without forfeiting their homes, their community property or other estate assets. Kalander & Shaw, Ltd. helps clients utilize legal exceptions to qualify for Medicaid benefits.
