I'm just trying to gather information to make informed decisions as what I thought would've been a simple process due to the lack of assets, keeps looking more and more complicated. Things keep popping up. It's crazy.
My father has had Masshealth for years due to low income and no assets. He was admitted to a nursing home in February thru may under Medicare because he needed rehab. Mid may he switched over to Masshealth paying because the stay was no longer for rehab purposes, but rather for his dementia and other physical ailments.
We get a call from the nursing home with a message saying his monthly bill is due for 674$.
Now, I did find out that nursing homes can go after the children to pay for parents care ( which is crazy to me, but it doesn't matter what I think because "lawfull" and "right" aren't always the same), but from what I saw not when Medicaid is paying for the stay.
Am I incorrect in this?
We're waiting to hear back from the nursing home and hopefully see some of this in writing so we can understand the breakdown, but any light that could be shed would be appreciated.
