My mom is in an assisted living facility and is on Medicaid. With this new Medicaid private providers she selected a provider. The facility opted not to go with the provider she selected so they switched her to the provider they were dealing with. Can the facility legally switch her to a different provider without her permission or the permission of her power of attorney? We would probably have gone with the suggestion of the faciltiy anyway but I can't see that she could be switched without her permission.
