Arrgh, I had to send in my mom's bank statements for her Medicaid renewal, and I realized that I accidentally let her assets exceed the $2000 limit at the end of one month, several months ago. I've been told that the end of the month is the key date - that at the end of every month, balance must be under $2000. One month it wasn't. Does anyone know the effect of this? If she lost benefits for one month I could pay the nursing home bill for a month, but I can't pay it every month. Will they just dock us the month, or cancel everything and make us start over? So frustrated and anxious.
