I have a parent who was in a nursing facility which we were not happy with at the time. Dad contracted sepsis and was hospitalized after our family insisted on having a transport take him. We have moved dad to another facility and the previous facility is asking for a debt owed. My father is Medicaid approved and Social Security has been received by the nursing home without authorization. My father does collect a pension but he does have a living wife. Does anyone know if this is protocol for nursing facilities to ask for debt being owed? My father was receiving a VA benefit while he was at home but since he was taken to a nursing facility, the benefit ended. The PR1 form discloses that he receives this benefit from VA which he does not since he was admitted. Very confusing but any insight would help at this point.
