Social Svs told me to spend down the insurance and it would be up to the VA Pension breakdown whether he will be eligible to reapply for Medicaid. His VA pension is broken down as follows: $207= Gross Benefit Amount, $326 = Spouse (which we did not realize there was any designated for mom), $705 Aid and Attendance. I need to know if this will qualify him after I spend down the insurance, or what I can do to allow him to stay in the nursing home? He cannot live alone anymore. He cannot take care of himself and we work and cannot stay with him 24/7.
