In Sept.I placed my mom in a NH contingent upon her qualifying for Medicaid. I provided the NH with cking statements for 3 months,amount of life insurance and set up a Miller Trust account because her 2 monthly checks gross were $200 over the limit for Medicaid in the state of GA. The only assets my mom has are social security check and V.A. aid and attendance. I appealed her denial for Medicaid as a result I have to go before a judge. Would it be in my mom's best interest to try and obtain a lawyer to go with me? The hearing is being held in the county of the NH is this usually the protocol used?
