My dad got notification for Medicaid 2 years ago, but not before we had run out of money. He pays his required pension and SS amounts faithfully each month, but this balance still looms. The nursing home won't do anything about it, and my dad literally has no assets to pay it. How do I get nursing home to either go after their money or erase the balance? It distresses my dad to see this balance he knows he can never pay. It's also interesting that it's roughly the exact amount my dad has on a life insurance policy? I'm assuming the home thinks they'll get that when he's gone? We'll need money to bury him and that will just about cover it.
