My mom is on Medicaid in a nursing home in Florida. We deposit all her income into a qualified income trust except the $130 she is allowed to keep. Each month we pay the the nursing home from the qualified trust but this month she did not get a bill from the nursing home as she was in the hospital for several weeks and is now in rehab. Do we still need to put all the income in the trust. There are expenses we would like to recoup such as legal fees for the qualifying trust, dentures and the initial money we had to front my mother to pay part of the first month. Also she has unpaid prior bills that we have or are paying. What exactly can be paid out of the trust?
