A senior citizen relative, "H", was financially exploited by a "friend." She was eventually found incapacitated and now has a court appointed guardian. By that time, her financial resources were exhausted. The guardian applied for Medicaid because H's Medicare benefits for rehab care ran out. During the 5 year lookback period, the "friend" used H's money as if it were her own, stole property from H's home, convinced H to transfer the title of a nearly new vehicle into her name, ordered costly items that were delivered to H's home and then removed, etc. After much pressure from family members, the guardian finally pushed for a police investigation of the perpetrator although H was not cooperative and insisted that the money and property appropriated by the friend were indeed gifts. The court appointed guardian now claims that she no longer needs to complete a 5-year lookback because she made a police report. The perp hasn't been charged yet, although the detective on the case has claimed that she will be charged. I am not sure that he ever WILL file charges. Now the guardian has directed him to stop communicating with the family about the case, claiming that she is H's "legal representative." Thus, it seems to me that there was NO effort to force the "friend" to make restitution of the funds as part of the Medicaid lookback, nor has the "friend" yet been charged with a crime. It appears to me that the perpetrator is quite possibly going to walk, managing to both bankrupt H and also avoid restitution. Is the guardian complicit in defrauding Medicaid? How should I report this?
