“By helping our clients understand the difference between Medicare and Medicaid, Beacon Eldercare helps to choose the right plan for you,” says CEO, Yvonne M. Murphy MA, MSW.

Medicare is a system of health care for citizens over 65 and/or disabled.

Medicare is something that you’ve worked towards for years, but it’s only a limited health care service. Medicare doesn’t pay for chronic illness; it only pays for hospital stays. Medicare pays for short clinical events in the home providing limited home care after a hospital or rehabilitation stay. Furthermore, it doesn’t pay for long-term home care services or skilled nursing facilities, two expensive forays that can drain a bank account or force someone to have to move.

The best way to combat the shortcomings of Medicare is by correctly applying for Medicaid.

The Medicaid application is an exhaustive process and must align with the policies and regulations of the New York State Department of Social Services.

Beacon Eldercare Inc., led by Yvonne Murphy MA, has more than two decades of experience assisting clients in NYC to successfully achieve Medicaid eligibility.

By having Medicaid, you are able to have assistance with your health insurance, home care services and help in finding the best nursing home to take care of you.

Contact Beacon Eldercare, Inc., today to ensure your Medicaid application is filed properly.

Call us to set yourself up to receive the medical services that you need without having to worry about losing everything that you worked so hard to obtain.
