He has run out of funds to pay the total rent due even though we still send in his SS check. We have asked Medicaid to advise on his claim and now we have received a 45 day eviction notice and don't know what to do.

It could well be that this facility sends out “45 day” notices as a matter of routine even though your dads application is being processed with all in order and will in all liklihood get cleared so he’s eligible before 45 day mark.
Calmly speak with business office.

My mom’s Medicaid took about 5 1/2 mos and her NH did a 30 day notice at the beginning of month 5 as that was their system. This NH did a preadmit review of all the documentation submitted to Medicaid and used this to satisfy thier internal review so they accepted mom as Medicaid Pending admission. This NH bundled all the documents stack I did for mom (about 130 pages) and sent the stack along with thier bill to the caseworker assigned to thier area (determined by zip code). I had been in phone & mail contact with Medicaid caseworker from month 2 on and all issues were dealt with (3 financial & 1medical) and it was just final processing issued and mailed by the state main Medicaid office that happened finally at start of month 5.

You need to press up Medicaid caseworker as to what’s what on status and if anything is missing get those items to caseworker ASAP via fax or certified mail.

For us, the NH did absolutely nothing to help the application move along or do any follow up for anything financial or personal that Medicaid needed. It seemed that’s on dpoa to get done. However mom had a medical eligibility issue (some prescriptions & labs were left off her chart upon admission) and the NH totally took the lead in getting this cleared although I had to file the medical appeal request as her mpoa.

Have you talked to the facility about the eviction notice? Most will be patient when Medicaid is pending. They may need to send out the official notices to protect themselves in case Medicaid is denied. Talk with them.

What answer did you get from your Medicaid inquiry?

I am sorry you are in this spot. And I agree, make it clear that you cannot take your LO home.

Can you pay down by paying the NH AL MC in advance?

This seems to be a big topic lately. You cannot wait till the last minute to file for Medicaid. It takes a certain amount of time to get everything together and once that is done you only have maybe 60 days to start using it. With my Mom I started the process in April. She paid privately for two months starting May and started her Medicaid July. She had to start Medicaid in 60days or I would have had to reapply. This means the money she had had to be spent down in that 60 days. Is he in a NH or AL. ALs are not obligated to find him another place. Not sure about a NH.
Did you or facility start the filing? If you u, u should be able to talk to the caseworker handling the filing. If the facility, then they should call. I found out with Mom not to assume everyone is doing their job. I called the caseworker to tell him Mom was in and paid up. No one had called him not even my lawyer. He said good and set everything up. He also was not notified by the NH she passed.
