Do you have to pay facility $2000 medicaid lets you keep? Due to past bill accumulated during time money spent down & qualified for medicaid. My aunts Nursing home has turned me into Adult Protective Services, claiming I must pay the nursing home her whole $2,000 she was allowed to keep when she went on medicaid. I got cross wise with the medicaid facilitator there when she called between my uncles death and funeral. demanding I do my aunts recertification immediately. I did get up set with her and feel this being turned ion Adult protective service is a payback. Now I am being forced to provide bank statements and who knows what else to this case worker. Although my aunts recertification has come through fine and she will now be paying 3 times what she was due to my uncles SS. i am being told my aunt is not allowed to keep this $2000.. thought it is the $2000 medicaid allowed her to keep when she went on medicaid a year ago. They claim there is a $5000 bill due from the gray period when she was spent down to the $2000 and medicaid began to pay. I would love to find where in a law it stats she does not have to spend this, give this to the nursing home. And I wish there was some sort of recourse for me against this malisious act by one nursing home employee. thanks in advance to anyone that can help me!
