According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the number of New Jersey residents age 65 or older increased by 24% between 2008 and 2018, and that percentage will grow as baby boomers continue to age.

“Planning in times of uncertainty can be complicated and overwhelming for seniors and their families. Our job is to simplify the process by asking the right questions and providing straightforward advice without all the fluff or legal jargon. Effective communication and accurate information are the keys to understanding your options and rights,” Costa said.

Among the services the firm provides, compiling and prosecuting Medicaid Applications in the State of New Jersey is a central focus. According to Costa, “Medicaid is a heavily regulated process and requires us to interact and coordinate with a number of entities, both private and public, healthcare and financial, all with their own competing interests and policies.” Nathan emphasized, “Navigating this landscape while caring for a family member or loved one is a daunting task. A lot of mistakes tend to happen early on in the process, so being proactive in locating the right person or firm to represent you can make all the difference.”
