We would like to get my Mother into a nursing home that is not in the Medicaid HMO Sponsored Program that we have (New York). We were told to dis-enroll which will take effect on February 28, 2014from the HMO. The Home my Mother is currently in has all of the paperwork to enroll in regular Medicaid but have yet to file for months now.
We were told today that you have to completely dis enroll before you can even apply for regular Long Term Medicaid. This worries us as we do not want to have no coverage as of March 1, 2014.
Does anyone know how this works because we are really confused.....!
