Dad entered the NH after being released from the Hospital and he needed 24 hour care. He has accumulated three months of charges as the Medicaid application was denied because I left three thousand in his account. Now the bill is $15,000 will Medicaid pick this up or am I, daughter and POA just responsible for the patient pay. My dad had Aid and Attendance with the Veterans and frankly I am considering which is better Medicaid or the VA. Certainly home health aides are less expensive than the 5000 NH pay if not approved for something I don't know about and he did not have a supplemental so he went on full daily pay after the 20 day Medicare ended.
