Medicaid Lawyers Pittsburgh, PA
Let our attorneys help you plan to maximize your Medical Assistance benefits
Medicaid, which is also known as Medical Assistance or simply MA in Pennsylvania, is a program jointly provided by the state and federal governments. Its purpose is to provide quality healthcare services to individuals and families who cannot afford to pay for medical care primarily due to low income. However, other criteria such as health status may also be considered in determining eligibility. By 2014, federal law will expand Medicaid eligibility to include all those whose incomes are less than 133 percent of the federal poverty level. The knowledgeable Medicaid attorneys in Pittsburgh, PA of Fingeret Law can provide the guidance you need to take full advantage of your benefits.
