My father is an Airforce Vetran and resides in an amazing nursing home here in the state of Nebraska. He has been there for 1 year. I had hired an elder law attorney to help me with this entire Medicaid application process. I personally discovered that my father has a shortfall of $200 every month for his share of cost to the nursing home. Medicaid calculated his full pension amount even though my mother gets $200 of that pension. This is a divorce obligation that had been set over 30 years ago. When I gave all requested documentation to Medicaid I also included the military statement of that pension that shows the $200 garnishment and Medicaid still took the full amount of pension to determine his share of cost. I am in the first renewal process and talking directly to the case worker is impossible She actually told me in a voice mail message that maybe go back to court and have it amended???? Meaning so my mother would relinquish her monthly $200? There must be something that can be done. My father has no more money and I as POA and daughter can’t afford to pay his shortfall in share of cost to the nursing home.
