Between September 2011 and Jan 2012 he rah up overt $50,000 in medical bills His only insurance was medicare a.. He is now is a nursing home, has no assets. As of 1/1/2012 he is on medi-cal. All his social security goes to the nursing home + I pay a small amount to cover his care. I have Parkinson's Disease and will need increasingly more in home help, and most likely a nursing home if I cannot afford adequate in home help. My monthly income barely covers expenses.I have paid about $20,000 of his bills with about $30,000 still owed.To pay the remaining amount would take a huge bite of my small savings. I have adequate medical insurance for myself, but was not able to get long term care because of my PD.
