I had an Elder Law attorney draw up a POA, everything was good. I was managing her money and keeping her checking account below $2000 while paying her nursing home bills from an account, created with her additional funds, but gifted to me. No other spending occurs from that that new account...it's strictly for paying her medical / nursing home bills.
I had to have surgery and during recovery I completely neglected to transfer the money above the $2000 amount. In January the final balance was $2100, February the balance was $2250.
Now Medicaid is asking for three months of bank statements and gave me a due date to return the information.
Have I totally blown her Medicaid qualification?? UGH!
