My dad's previous nursing facility sent me a $43000.00 bill after he left there. $8000.00 is money I owe on his behalf which I'm willing to pay ( It went to a collection agency)and I've informed the agency by letter that I will do that.
The rest is the charges from a 3 month waiting period for Medicaid, which ended in denial but he was approved the following month.
The admission agreement only holds me responsible for my dads income not to pay privately if he didn't have the money.
I'm seeking counsel but I just can't believe this could happen. They nearly killed my dad with dehydration at the time. I had to send him to the hospital because he was near death from being dehyrated and no one moved to do anything.
Has this ever happened to anyone else?
