Arizona Medicaid Planning Services
Arizona Medicaid Planning Services is a fee-for-service organization that helps families shelter and protect assets, plan for, and assist in the Medicaid process (known as the Arizona Long Term Care System or ALTCS). Since 1999, we have helped over a thousand families transition from private pay onto public benefits.
ALTCS – Arizona Long Term Care System
Are you or an elderly or disabled loved one in need of additional care but worried about the expense that comes with long-term assistance? You may qualify for the Arizona Long Term Care System (ALTCS), which provides senior citizens and disabled individuals with monetary assistance to pay for continued care. While qualifying can be a lengthy and complicated process, the Arizona Medicaid Planning Services Benefits practice assists families in planning, qualifying and applying for ALTCS benefits.
Not only are we by your side during the application process, but we also look for lesser-known potential benefits available, including Veteran’s Administration aid and attendance benefits, and other VA or public benefits. We know how expensive care can be and are committed to maximizing your benefits so you and your loved ones can look forward to the future with peace of mind.
