Mother in nursing home, father is spending down assets. Problem is father was old school and never had a credit card or a checking account. Would go to back and withdraw something like $1000 or $2000 each month cash month and paid all bills and utilities also by cash. Will be doing Medicaid application in a few months. I am told by many people that if he cannot produce receipts for that 1000/month or 2000/month, then Medicaid will automatically assume it is a gift to someone. Can anyone tell me how close Medicaid scrutinizes an application? Do they want a full 5 year accounting to the penny? Thanx all.
