He has currently been in a nursing home for six months and now they say he can go home. he currently owes the nursing home 30,000. dollars. he applied for medicaid however it has taken 6 months for it to go through and it still has not gone through, he has 8000 dollars in a burial fund and recieves 12,00. a month from social security. Should he not get the medicaid , pay the nuring home the 8000.00 keep his socisl security check and make payments on his bill using his social security check or keep trying to get medcaid, knowing that his will have to sell his house after his passes to pay back medcaid?
