My Mom lives in R.I. ,income of 1,238.00 S.S. and is on Medicare. My mother is 83 and gets 1,238.00 per month from social security, she is a R.I. resident and has Medicare and United Health which is the same, but I need to get her Medicaid to pick up the 20% co-payment so she can afford to go into a nursing home since I can't take care of her much longer! Please let me know what I can do, she worked her entire life and now she can't get the care she needs!!! She pays rent, electric, food, cable and phone since she has life alert. She pays 2 Hospitals 25.00 per month that she owes over 3,000 dollars all together and she tries her best to pay every month! Plus her medicine co-pays so she is left with basically nothing, she has no savings, and no assets worth talking about so if anyone can give me some advice please feel free!!!
