My friend's husband required home health care after a stroke. The wife has a full time job. They hired a lawyer who deals with elder care issues. They provided tons of required paperwork and were living with the Medicaid guidelines. They are in NY. They were Medicaid pending for 6 months and then were told they were accepted as being Medicaid eligible. Now and another 6 months later they are being told that the state is reversing their decision for the original 6 month period. They do have their lawyer working on this but I am posing this question as I know there are experts here regarding Medicaid and am wondering if this is possible. They did hear that the state does not have enough money.
