We paid ourselves back for costs of monthly travel and purchase of groceries and supplies. Our POA allows expenses. We have rental car receipts. Will Medicare allow the rental car reciepts for the 500 mile trips monthly and thus consider the $1k transfer as an amount for expenses under $1k (cars typically cost us 400 to 500 per week). For those grocery and drug store supplies we have only credit card records. We did not maintain a ledger as we are working full time, traveling to see to both parents individual care, and no good at accounting. But not stealing. In fact , for a year we have been paying for their care but now we are facing cancer and retirement, and may need to apply but wonder how the look back detail is requested. What format, what proof? Will they demand physical receipts from drug stores? Etc. Will any perceived unjustified transfer be "made up for" by our paying their bills this year? Seeing an attorney is nigh impossible because we are in a different state and already it is too hard to get time off just to get to the important hospital and doctor events.
