Hi ! Wondering if anyone has any advice. The lawyer is not being helpful. Applied for Medicaid for dad in NJ thankfully it was finally approved. Applied in July and they are paying from Oct 1st. There is also a 5k payment they are considering a gift. My sister moved from California for almost a year to take care of him and they are calling it a gift. My question is. Is it worth it to have the lawyer appeal it at a hearing? The 5k is ok if that slides but there are 3 months that we paid for his assisted living we were told we’d get back. Lawyer said anything from the Medicaid pending date would be reimbursed. Apparently not so. Worth it to appeal? This involves another 1 k to lawyer. Advice? Thanks!
