Lollipop- as others have posted, in order to give you suggestions we need to know why your mom is ineligible for Medicaid?

If it is a transfer penalty due to $ she gifted you or others in her family, that’s quite a different problem than if her monthly income is over the maximum allowed by Medicaid in your state.
So why was she ineligible?

There is an appeals process. Don't let them convince you to bring her home, they won't park her wheelchair at the side of the road.

Is she in a nursing home that accepts Medicaid?

If so, the social worker should help to transfer mom to a Medicaid facility.
