My friend on Medicaid has Parkinsons. He is a good prospect

Customer Question

My friend on Medicaid has Parkinsons. He is a good prospect for, and therefore would most likely benefit from a procedure called "deep brain stimulation." He says that Medicaid won't pay for the procedure which, all in, costs between $35k-$50k. Question, is there a way that his friends could pay for the procedure and follow-up costs, without negatively impacting his current benefits?

Yes. The payments should be made directly to health care providers.

This way, there will be no income in his account to report to Medicaid.

Thank you for your cooperation.
