My mom has been on home hospice for 4 months—the last month in my home. It’s alresdy taken a major toll on my family life. I want her to go into a skilled nursing facility and receive care for the medical conditions related to her diagnosis. Will her stay, including room and board, be covered by Medicare?

LW Medicaid would be an issue due to loans mom has made to your sib. How did mom end up in your home?

No, mom would be private pay at the NH. Costs are in the 10K per month range, at least in major metro areas.

If mom is impoverished, Medicaid would kick in. If she is a Veteran or the wife or widow of a vet, there might be coverage from that source.
