My mother has spent down all her money and has been put on Medicaid at the nursing home. Yet I still get bills for x-rays or doctor's visits and most recently from the nursing home. I called and talked to the Financial Mgr of nursing home and she said I should call Medicaid. Said that Medicaid is billing them more for mom's care. I told her that nothing has changed. Her social security and pension have stayed the same. I would think that once she is approved for Medicaid all bills would be covered without me having to call Medicare or her Supplemental insurance company to handle bills.
