My grandmother was admitted to a nursing home over a year ago. As of a few months ago, when I took over as her POA, the nursing home had never submitted a Medicaid application from her time of admission, claiming non-compliance from other family members, myself not included. Now the facility states it has rights to access all her financial information documented in her Medicaid application. I explained to the nursing home it does not have any legal rights to the financial information, and at the time of filing, instructed Medicaid not to disclose her financial information to the nursing home. I sent a redacted copy to the nursing home. The nursing home now claims it is owed money from the day of her admission to this day, even though I've stated severally I'm not responsible for the actions of family members before I came into the picture. The question remains as to what legal extent, if any, a nursing home has rights to my grandmother's financial information.
