President’s Message – Thomas Pfund

Medicaid4You, LLC was founded in November 2009. We started our company to fulfill a growing need: to help nursing home residents or their families secure this important benefit— Medicaid to cover nursing home costs, also commonly referred to as Title 19. Since then, Medicaid4You has successfully obtained Medicaid benefits for thousands of clients requiring 24-hour medical care in a facility or at home.

When a loved one requires around the clock medical care, arranging that care becomes very emotional. Our clients are usually the spouse or other family members—children, siblings, or grandchildren who feel overwhelmed. They know that every minute they spend working on the claim is time taken away from being with their loved one, as well as from managing their own busy lives.

Applying for Medicaid is a time-consuming effort, requiring knowledge of Medicaid rules. For most families, finishing an application can take 40 to 50 hours or more over a period of weeks. Most people try their best, but something usually slips through the cracks, causing expensive delays and anxiety for everyone involved.

We have completed thousands of these applications and are very well acquainted with the Medicaid rules and eligibility guidelines. By knowing what is required and being proactive, we are able to properly prepare a complete submission and navigate the Medicaid process for a timely approval—carrying some of the stress and burden for our clients during a difficult transition, so they can focus instead on the well-being of their loved one.
