With medicaid pending for long term care costs (4 months). Last October my father was moved into long term care which is outside his budget. He is medicaid pending but is now able to move into a new assisted living facility that he can afford. If approved, will medicaid cover the period of time in long term care and support his move back to assisted living? or will they require him to pay for all of the time in long term care and completely deplete his assets? He is married (wife lives in assisted living as well).
