Hello to all. I have a question. Mom will probably need to go to a nursing home within 6-9 months. Her health is continuing to decline severely . My husband's job just told him they are almost certain they want him/us to relocate in the next year or year and a half. Does anyone know how this works with Medicare/Medicaid? If mom has satisfied the five year look-back period and gets placed in a nursing home in our current state, and her only living relative and power of attorney (me, her daughter) has to move across country, will mom be eligible to go directly into a nursing home in the new state, or is there a waiting period or new look-back period in the new state?
Thanks a million.
