• Thank you so much Karl, for your assistance with my Mother’s eldercare planning and Medi-Cal application. Your knowledge of the industry, Medicare, Medi-Cal and related financial/estate planning with very evident from our first meeting. RPA made the Medi-Cal application process as seamless as possible, taking on all the tough work coordinating with the state agency. I had previously read numerous horror stories about the Medi-Cal process, however, you and your extremely capable manager, Jamie Nikami, ensured there was absolutely no problem with the application. You made a bureaucratic/complex process simple and clear from the start, answering all my “urusai” questions, completely handling all communication with Medi-Cal, and keeping me updated at all points during the process through its final approval! I could not have asked for a better company and team to help my Mom, and me at this very critical stage in her life.

  • On behalf of my mother, father, and brother, I want to sincerely thank you for your assistance in the re-organization of my parent’s finances to allow us to qualify for and receive Medi-Cal benefits. In a time of stress and confusion to our family, you provided patience, guidance, and selfless concern. Your expertise and knowledge greatly reduced the amount of time we would have had to spend in researching and completing the Medi-Cal forms, not to mention having to deal with government bureaucracy. Our community is extremely fortunate to have someone of your knowledge, understanding, and integrity. Thank you once again for all your assistance.

  • Thank you for your efforts to obtain such quick approval for my sister to qualify for Medi-Cal. She has been in nursing homes, due to an auto accident for the past nine years and on private-pay all this time. Your services were most appreciated and be assured that you’ll be highly recommended to others. Karl, thanks again to you and Leanne.

  • Words cannot express our family’s appreciation for your effort in my husband being accepted by Medi-Cal. By attending your seminar at Keiro recently, I was made aware of the many hours of labor and mounds of paper work involved in each application. Your expertise and knowledge will be introduced to our friends. Thank you once again.

  • Your mother’s been approved for Medi-Cal!” that was music to my ears when I listened to your phone message. "Thank you!” just seems inadequate for the gratefulness I feel - I am so glad my mom, sister, and I decided to have you work on her application and send it in on her behalf. Although many people said that I should have filled out the pages of paper work myself, I knew that having you do it would be done correctly and expeditiously. I am pleased and happy that mom will be getting the best possible care at Keiro ICF and she does not have to worry about the finances. Karl, I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone! Although we agreed on a specific amount, please accept the additional check as a token of our appreciation for a job well done!!! Thank you…arigato…merci…muchos gracias!
