As far as I know, if she is on a private pay plan, she is. This is part of her Medicare plan. Once her Medicare days run out, she'll need to start paying out of pocket. Of course, once she is on Medicaid (should that happen) then all of that income goes to her care. For more information, or to check out quirks that could make this case different, go to www.medicare.gov.
