My mom has been in a nursing home since the end of May. Medicare and Medicaid pay for what her social security doesn't. She is in a private room and when she moved in I agreed that we would pay out of pocket the additional cost for her private room. We have not been billed for her private room once yet. My concern with this is, will we receive a huge bill for it sometime in the future? The nursing home billing employee already discussed it with me and she said she would write up a bill, but I never received it. Is there a certain time they have to send the bill for us to have to pay them? Such as can they bill a year or so later for something that is going on now? I feel like I make no sense and I am having a hard time explaining my question. I'm burnt out at the moment!
