Benefits Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, ApparentPlan often advocates on behalf of individuals who have been denied benefits from Medicare. Common cases we work on include the redetermination of an observation status and recovering benefits that are denied due to "not improving."
ApparentPlan is a nonprofit organization. We work with individuals regardless of their ability to pay. That being said, we do rely on donations to keep operating. Donations, no matter how small, are always appreciated.
ApparentPlan has benefit counselors who can walk you through a computer-based screening program. At the end of that assessment, you will have a good idea of the programs for which you qualify and application process for those programs.
AparentPlan charges for Medicare advocacy work on an hourly or contingency basis. Our hourly rates are based on a sliding fee where the top fee is $125 per hour. If we accept a case on contingency, we will set a fee at the beginning and will only charge for our services when we achieve the desired outcome.
