My mom is moving along with my family from one state to another. She is in a long term care nursing facility that her Medicare and Medicaid pay for. For the first month at the new place, she will not receive Medicaid because she has to be a resident to the state for 30 days before being eligible. But she will still be covered by Medicare. The nursing home says that they do not want any of her Medicare information, so we have to pay everything out of pocket for the first month. Is this normal? I thought I read Medicare pays 80% of care.
