My mom is in a nursing home and her money will run out soon. I want to know when we should start the application process for Medicaid. I have gotten 2 different responses when I pose the question to admins at the Nursing Home. On told me to apply when she has 3-6 months of funds left while the other told me to wait to the funds are down to the last month then apply.
i really want to do this the right way and am afraid that I'm going to do something wrong and be liable for money I don't have. Does anyone have any experience or expertise in this?
