Hello I have a severely disabled daughter from birth and ever since she turned 18 years old I have been her power of attorney, she is now 23yrs old two and a half years ago I put my fiance on as a hired help that is no relation to my daughter at all. Just recently I have a new worker and three months into knowing her we receive a letter from our accounting place stating that we can no longer receive benefits because now me and the hired help are married and they say that that's Medicaid rule I've looked everywhere on the internet to find anything that remotely goes with this and I can not find anything. Now my new worker wants me now wants to take me off as my daughter's power of attorney in order for my husband now to receive hired help benefits from taking care of my daughter has anyone ever gone through this. I have been literally sick because I don't want to take myself off as her power of attorney because she cannot speak or make decisions for herself she is severely multiply impaired and I don't know what to do.

Listen heard u cold hearted ..u have no right to say any of that. You have no idea about my daughters medical condition, i would never just put her in a home. I dont give up on my kids. And fyi my husband dose have a job besides this. This was in no way a free ride to get money this was her right to receive the safest and the best care in her own home, and just bcuz hes my husband and not her father they want to stop but before when we werent married and living together it was ok....i love my daughter and i would never just give up and hand her over to strangers...so BACK OFF!!!

Get your daughter to a group home. She is not a cash cow for your husband. Send him to work outside the home. I agree, you should not be POA. I have a sister in a group home and she is very happy.
As the wife of the payee, you have a conflict of interest; basically you are paying yourself.

I do go through a home care agency CLS Community Living Services. I have never heard this rule before and havent heard anything from Mediciad just the worker from CLS. I am consulting with a Mediciad Lawyer on this matter....Im just wondering if anyone has gone through this and if this is true? And what can i do?

I would recommend calling the medicaid office back and trying to speak with a different person for clarification.
At this point, speaking to an attorney would be advised as well, if it is within your means to do so. This way you can be aware of all the rules.

also, I would recommend hiring a private home care agency, if it is possible. It will be much simpler and your daughter could still have care.
