Call Terris, Pravlik & Millian, LLP, for free advice and/or free legal help with your DC Medicaid problem at (202) 682-0578. Please note that our legal representation of you will not begin until you sign a retainer agreement with us.
If you are a recipient of Medicaid in the District of Columbia and are experiencing problems, our law firm may be able to provide you with free legal help or refer you to another agency if we are not able to help. We can provide free legal help with the following problems:
- Medical services and screening (such as blood lead tests, vision and hearing examinations) for children up to the age of 21 (the EPSDT program). If your child has been prescribed a medically necessary service (such as speech therapy, in-home nursing or personal care assistance, occupational therapy, dental or orthodontic care) or needs to be screening for a possible problem (such as needing eye glasses or to know his or her blood lead level) and you are having trouble getting the service for your child, we can assist you.
- Problems at recertification. If you received a notice or have been cut off from Medicaid at recertification time even though you mailed back your form, we may be able to help you.
- Reimbursement for out-of-pocket expenses that should have been covered by Medicaid or assistance if you are being billed for medical expenses when you had Medicaid at the time. Such claims usually must be submitted within six months, so contact us promptly.
