Lawrence Shafer was an Eligibility Interviewer with the State of Arizona, the majority of which was with the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AKA AHCCCS) and the ALTCS program. In 1999, Mr. Shafer Founded Arizona Medicaid Planning Services, LLC allowing him to work directly with families to plan for and transition from private pay to public benefits under the State’s long term care system known as A.L.T.C.S 


“I often meet people while they are going through some of the most stressful times in their lives.  My goal is the help reduce that stress by showing options that they might not knew existed.  Ultimately I want to help my clients maximize what they are entitled to keep and minimize out of pocket expenses; while making a smooth transition from private pay to public benefits.”

While the State is currently denying cases at a rate of about 80% Mr. Shafer has maintained an overall approval rate of over 92% on first time applications. Mr. Shafer’s company Arizona Medicaid Planning Services LLC is here to help you through this difficult process.
