sb2 recovers full Medicaid balance of $20k within 5 weeks of receiving case.

In a NC facility a resident failed to apply for Medicaid due to significant resources and yet refused to make any payments toward his skilled care.  Consequently, the resident was discharged from the facility.  sb2 intervened and sent a demand letter to the resident, detailing his legal obligations and the facility’s available remedies.  Further, sb2 also sent the resident a mortgage and note and persistently followed up with phone calls. sb2 embarked upon successful negotiations, and as a result, the resident agreed to pay the full balance of $20k and provided the facility with a check within 5 weeks of sb2’s intervention.
