My 57 year old uncle is in a LTC nursing home (about 1 1/2 years now). Medicaid is paying for his medical care and the nursing home takes his monthly social security disability check to help cover the costs of him living at the nursing home. He's just been granted a Veteran's monthly compensation disability check. Must this new income be reported to Medicaid? Will Medicaid disqualify him now and throw him out of the nursing home?
