My mom is a medicaid recipient in a Nursing Home in NJ. I had her funeral arrangements coordinated. However, I am the purchaser of this funeral plan as my mom has no assets /resources to get one. I will have to give the NH social services department a copy of the the funeral contract so they know what to do if my mom passes and i cannot be contacted. Will the NH social workers think this was a medicaid asset/resource of my mom's even if I'm the purchaser? Or do they just need the info in case my mom passes?
Additionally, a copy of this funeral contract was provided to the medicaid caseworker in the medicaid recertificaton paperwork.
