This issues the State of Rhode Island has experiences with the roll out of the new computer system designed to integrate all human services offered to all eligible Rhode Island residents has been well documented. What gets lost in the conversation are the dedicated and hard working people that battle through these transition pains for the benefit of the public. There are breaking points for all people and though this is certainly a loss for the State, the factors prompting the chief lawyer to quit should not be deemed unexpected.

The more important thing for Rhode Islanders who need Medicaid is that they understand the rules and regulations to qualify, and that they file the application timely and accurately and comply with the program. Even though the state struggles with the administration of the program, nothing has changed the rules for Medicaid eligibility. Thus it is perhaps more important that today, individuals receive strong, competent advice as to qualification and application for benefits understanding that the state is struggling to transition the administration of the program for the future.

Medicaid is a program that has asset rules and medical eligibility requirements. In our office, we focus on advising folks who need and seek long-term care, skilled nursing, called Long Term Support Services on the Medicaid application for the state of Rhode Island.
