I am the POA for my mother in law who was admitted to a nursing home in March 2012. It took months until she qualified for WV Medicaid, effective July 2012.
After July 2012, I was notified of a balance of over $1800 for services rendered (not posted) to her before the Medicaid. Medicaid did not retro. I had made several inquiries into balance and did not receive this information.
In good faith, my spouse (her son) and I tried to make payments since we were told it was owed. My mother in law has no funds and that is why she qualified. Now, we are being told the balance was higher. We have paid $ 500.00 of our money.
We recently received a letter from the Administrator and has implied the possibility of discharging my mother in law.
I feel trapped. Are there any resources?
