Decided mom needs placement in a nursing home. How long is a NY community PRI good for? Can we apply for Medicaid if she has community Medicaid already in place. Thanks for the help.

Who decided? You will need to get a doctor's referral. The PRI documents need for care, but you need a doctor's referral to get admitted to nursing home. Start with her primary care physician. The community medicaid providers can also give you referrals for social workers that can help guide you through the process. Each change in status will require a new evaluation, so a PRI is only good for the week that it last reviewed. The requirements for in home vs nursing home care may be different so start with Medicaid social worker or your doctor.
