My husband applied for Aid and Attendance for his widowed mother over one year ago. We have never heard anything back from them. He even went to the local office where he originally applied and spoke to a person there who told him it takes a long time , which we obviously know. Now, since the original paperwork was completed and sent to the VA , she was able to be get on Medicaid and is presently in a nursing facility since last Dec.30th. At this point, I am wondering if it makes any sense to refile on her behalf ----or is this a moot point now that she is on Medicaid? I have read and heard that they go back to the original filing date when he applied for her aid. Whatever little money she had was spent on in home caregivers while she was waiting to be approved for the Aid and Attendance. Is she still entitled to get any monetary reimbursement for all the months if she were to every be approved? My husband has POA for her. I would appreciate any and all feedback to this issue.
