If my mom was kicked out of a nursing facility due to non-payment, can another facility refuse her?
She has been waiting on Medicaid for months and felt it was close to approval. After 9 months of paying out of pocket, we have simply run out of money. They are kicking her out. Can I get her in another facility? Can I keep them from kicking her out? We applied for Medicaid through the facility over 7 months ago. They just recently told us that Medicaid doesn't have it in the system and asked for original application as it would be easier for Medicaid to "scan" it into the system. Apparently, they couldn't do it with a copy. Unfortunately, all this time has gone by and now, they have asked that we remove her by the end of the month because we are beginning to pile up a bill. I feel that Medicaid could have been approved months ago, if they had not dropped the ball. What can I do?
