'Mom, we need to start the Medicaid application to pay for Dad's nursing home care by getting 5 years of bank statements. What bank do you use?
Oh dear, your father always handled the finances. I think it was ABC Bank...?"
"Mom, where is your checkbook?
I think your father always paid everything on the computer..."
"Mom, do you know Dad's password?
Oh, I don't use the computer..."
When you have had a conversation like this with your loved one, you know it's time to call EMMA!
EMMA is Elder Medicaid Management Assistance. We help your family obtain the 5 years’ worth of financial and other documents required by Medicaid to pay for your elder’s nursing home stay when private funds run out.
With our elders living longer, it is not unusual for a family to run out of private funds to pay for nursing home care which can run $10,000 per month. When this happens, families need to file for Medicaid’s Medically Needy Program.

Helping with the Medicaid 5-year "look back" to move your family forward.
