If you are denied ADW Services, you have the right to appeal and ask for a “Fair Hearing“. Look carefully at the denial notice to see your appeal deadline. Make sure you file your appeal on time. Also, review the notice to find out why you were denied so that you can start preparing for your hearing. You may need to get more medical records or witnesses, and that will take time.
Legal Aid can help people with these appeals. To see if we can help you, apply for help. Also, federal Medicaid rules also allow you to use a relative, friend, or any other spokesperson that you choose to help you with your appeal, or you can represent yourself.
