I am in the process of trying to get my mother transferred from a skilled nursing center in one state to another. She is still under her Medicare payment window and I am trying to get her moved before it runs out and then apply for Medicaid in the process in case it is long term. I assume I have to wait until she is in my state before I can apply? Also she is the surviving spouse of a Vietnam Vet. Is Medicaid best or A & A?
This all so new to me and I am trying to do the best I can for her, but all is very confusing. Her income resources are limited and so are mine. I would appreciate any suggestions.
