Medicaid Recertification

Once someone has been approved for Community Medicaid (home care benefits) or Chronic Medicaid (nursing home benefits) they will need to recertify with the local Department of Social Services each year. The recertification notice comes with an application that must be completed and sent in prior to the due date. The application should be sent in with supporting documentation showing income and asset verification for the Medicaid recipient and spouse. This is the way the Department of Social Service ensures that the Medicaid recipient is still entitled to the benefit.
