I have guardianship. I pay for nursing home out of his checking accout. Nursing home told me he won't qualify for Medicaid, he owns property besides his own home. No spouse, Mom died 20yrs ago. What happens when I can't pay nursing home anymore, will they throw him out on streets?
I live 1,870 miles from nursing home, and can't afford to pay his bills out of my own money. His lawyer in his state is not helpful to me, won't give complete answers on anything. How do I apply for Medicaid for my dad in another state, where I do not live in? Would he get Medicaid, if no cash to pay nursing home? I have to pay property taxes in 2 days, out of my own money, dad doesn't have enough cash. I don't want the state to take the property if taxes don't get paid, not to mention I have already been threatened to be removed from guardianship, by his lawyer, and his brother in law wife, despite the fact that they are 84yr +++. Nasty comments from his lawyer, yet won't tell me answers that I need and expect from a lawyer. Help???
Also, won't Medicare pay for incontinance briefs/pull ups if it is chronic, meaning never dry long??
Nursing home is billing 2 different kinds of briefs/pullups, none are covered. Also billing for specified bandages used by wound nurse for ongoing weeping of legs/edema problems.
