When insurance would no longer pay, she dug in her heels and it took quite a while to get her to give my sister POA and convince her to apply for Medicaid. She is at home now, Medicaid approved and receives assistance at home. However, she racked up a bill at the nursing home prior to getting approval through Medicaid. She currently owes the nursing home about $10,000. We have been making small payments monthly. The nursing home has filed suit against my mother and myself because I signed as her representative when admitting her as she was unable to do so. I also signed an exhibit that said I did not voluntarily agree to be responsible for her nursing home bill. However, the contract is worded “you and your” throughout and refers to my mother and myself. So now I am on the hook for this bill. My mother has an SUV that could possibly be sold to cover most of this bill. Is this something that Medicaid will permit? I have no means to pay this bill. I’m not even her POA. This will ruin my credit.
