After the recent death of my wife, Mary, I sought legal assistance to obtain Medicaid approval for payment of her medical bills. Upon many recommendations, I obtained representation by the firm of Jerold Rathkoff. Fortunately, Jane Fern-Zimmer was assigned to handle my case. Jane immediately began the arduous task of handling the endless demands and denials of Medicaid. After many long months of effort by Jane, the Medicaid people finally approved my application. I feel very fortunate to have had Jane Fern-Zimmer working on my behalf. Thanks to her skill and efforts, she succeeded in getting the necessary approval.
Jane was instrumental in helping our family with the Medicaid process for my mother. She was knowledgeable of what paperwork we needed to gather for the process and kept us informed as the application was processed. She worked closely with our family, the case manager and supervisor of Medicaid to process the initial application, appeal and yearly renewal paperwork. Jane returned phone calls in a timely manner and was able to answer our questions or referred us to others within her office that specialized in that area. It was nice to be able to have someone to ask questions too during the stressful period of deciding on the right nursing home and the medicaid process to ensure our mother had the best care she could possibly receive during the aging process and Alzheimer's.
