The Medicaid application is an extensive process where five years worth of documentation needs to be provided in order to receive benefits.
Additionally, with the Medicaid application process, if you are not qualified for Medicaid and you apply, you could disqualify yourself for a longer penalty period that could have been avoided. As such, it is always important to be sure that you consult with an attorney prior to application.
Unfortunately, some people will apply without knowing the detailed rules and disqualify themselves. Had they made one or two small changes, they would have qualified. Often this simply means recategorizing an asset or two. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the disqualification, the length of time varies; it may mean simply redoing paperwork or years of disqualification.
