Parent in long term skilled nursing care in California. Is on Medi-care and Medi-cal. All of social security goes for the care except $35.00 which is for the personal needs. Parent has credit card debt and I am POA. I have contacted credit card companies letting them know the situation & they have received the POA. No money or assets to pay. Question: when debt is sent to collection agency then they too want copy of POA. On one debit it went to two different agencies. Do you have to keep sending POA's when the debt gets passed on to someone else? What can I do? I know I'm not responsible for the debt. I've made an offer to settle but not accepted. How to handle when the debt keeps getting sent to different agencies?
