My 91 year old hubby is in the nursing home on Medicaid. I am not on Medicaid at all, yet they refuse to allow me to keep enough money to pay either my insurance deductible or the medical bills after both Medicare and private insurance have finished. Every time I present Medicaid office with medical bills I am told "Sorry but we do not allow for medical bills after insurance". HOW can they stop you from paying what is legally yours to pay? Now I am being sued for over $112,000 in medical bills and driven nuts with collection calls at all hours of the day and night. Why can't I pay my bills????
