State: Colorado. My father has terminal cancer and has been in the hospital for a few weeks. He has recovered somewhat. We are trying to get him admitted to the long term care facility near the hospital. He was convinced that he must apply for Medicaid before entering the LTC. He has limited bank but owns a lot in town and a small ranch. I've read some of the comments on here and I believe he was coerced into signing the MERP, so is he committed to the Medicaid program now? I read somewhere that Medicare would pay for limited nursing home care immediately after a hospital stay. He has been improving, though he is terminal. And why wouldn't the LTC facility accept a lien on one of the properties while we get it ready and sell it?
