I have power of attorney but that is not clearly spelled out on the specific form I signed. The home has retroactively raised the rate for care for February and refuse to credit Medicaid monies for February and March to the bill. Credit for Medicaid monies had been agreed upon and where credited to her bill for Dec and January. My sister continues to live at the assisted living home, but is now on Hospice and not expected to live for more that a few weeks. The March bill is for $5,050, the agreement I signed is for $4,500 with the understanding that Medicaid monies would be applied. The Medicaid payment for February was Approximately $500, for March it was increased to $50 a day.

I would call Medicaid and tell them monies are not be credited inva timely manner. You should have received a letter concerning an increase. If she is on Hospice they are contributing less for her care.

No, I don't think representative means ur responsible for costs. Just the person they deal with. POA should be on file with AL. If Medicaid says payment has been received by AL deduct it. Ask Medicaid for a printout of payments and attach it. I would question the increase.

An increase in rates is not the issue. The retroactive increase is what is in question.

She recieves Medicaid. As I had stated above, her medicaid was credited to the bill for Dec and Jan. Medicaid support was increased to three hours per day for March ($50 a day).

You should always write "POA" after your name. Failing to do this can leave you liable, depending on what you signed. Read the fine print, because rates always go up. You also don't say if the Medicaid application was approved by Medicaid. Approval can take months. You need to know where the application stands. Hospice on the other hand, is a Medicare program, so you need to know what that is paying for.
