Vicki Nagel, have been a licensed Social Worker in South Dakota working in elder care for 30 years. I am strictly a “Medicaid Consultant” and should not be considered as offering, legal, financial, investment or accounting advice or decisions.
Applying for Medicaid can be extremely complicated. There are innumerable guidelines to follow and even simple errors can result in a denial of benefits. The consequences of being denied
by Medicaid are severe and can negatively impact the applicants’ finances and peace of mind, especially when one spouse needs to continue to pay the bills at home.
The Medicaid application and review process are time consuming and overwhelming. I can help alleviate this process with one on one guidance and save the applicant time and unnecessary stress.
Together, we will calculate and carefully plan asset protection to meet all income and asset requirements.
I will develop the Medicaid application, file the application
and serve as Authorized Representative and interface with the Department of Social Services on your behalf.
