Help Please! My mothers nursing home resident account has exceeded the limit by $2000!
We were told we need to spend $2000 and reapply for medicaid for her. We already took out her funeral arangements. She does not need anything. What shoud we do now? Is there a type of life insurance policy that we can use that money for? She has no assets, does not own anything, no car, no house etc.
The nursing home said we should have watched the excess in her account but we did not know what to buy for her. She has a TV, she uses one of their wheelchairs. What possibly could she use that we The NH said we might have to bring her home for a few weeks and then bring her back when we spend the money but even at that, what would be allowed? We live in Florida.
