My mom was recently discharged from a hospital with an order for home health to follow. This included RN, PT and OT. She has VA for her medical but in this case needed to go to the closest hospital. There was mention of a mobile physician going out to her home-I declined as I was setting her up with the VA to follow which included blood draws, MD, RN. Anyway, because my mom was not 100% alert...they ordered this. My mom did not have a clue who was coming and going. Long story short.....she has about $1500 dollars to pay that Medicare would not pay for. This is for the MD visit that wasn't VA and the lab draw that also wasn't VA. She doesn't have money...they are on a very limited budget. Anybody out there have any suggestions for this?
Thank you and bless you all.
