The Handbook is a comprehensive and accessible guide for attorneys, financial planners, discharge planners, health care administrators and social workers who advise and assist elderly New York residents.This guidebook provides an overview of the benefits available under entitlement programs and services including Social Security, Supplemental Security Income, Medicare, Medicaid, Disability, Home Care, Nursing Home Law, Housing and Adult Protective Services. Both New York State and federal programs are covered, with emphasis on variations specific to New York. Each chapter explains the rules, regulations (and exceptions to the rules) and describes application and appeal procedures. Also included are fold-out benefits checklists, offering New York City and State income and health entitlement programs at a glance.
