My father is moving to into assisted living in March.He has seizures (controlled ) we were told he was going to have to have a neurologist (quite obviously) which he does. Does assisted living require physical examinations.We were told eventually Medicaid (he will be a private pay until his savings are at the level required by Medicaid ) requires them. Or does each stare have their own requirements?

You will need to ask the assisted living management if they require a physical. The one where my MIL is does not require an annual physical. An assisted living does expect a certain level of functioning both physically and mentally which if he falls beneath, he will not be able to stay.

Each state manages medicaid slightly differently. I would look up the medicaid in your state and see what it says online.
