My Mom has been in current nursing home for a year. We finally applied for Medicaid and it was approved. After the year was up, we had to reapply. It turned out that I let her account get a little over the required maximum, so they now are asking for bank statement for the previous 2 years, wanting all records for deposits, purchased, etc., etc. I don't have all those records and it would take forever to get all the statements, copies of deposit slips, receipts for all purchases made for those years. I don't understand why they are requesting records for years that she was already approved. I don't have the funds to private pay the nursing home. What option is left. No there are no other assets. I think I heard someone say that if you can't pay for the nursing home, that the state has to put the patient in a home wherever they chose. I don't want this, but no one else in the family is able to care for her. We live in TX.
