Anyone Here w/Experience re: Missouri Medicaid and Nursing Homes?
My purpose for posting this here is that I have only been made aware of a situation yesterday and I have to have this resolved first thing this morning......

My question......if a disabled person goes into a nursing home, and the administrator applies for Medicaid on his behalf.....and if Medicaid ACCEPTS him.....does the nursing home still get his monthly disability check?

My daughter and I are getting two different stories. The social worker told me yesterday that the facility has a legal right to his monthly disability check and that Medicaid only covers what he matches.....

The administrator told my daughter that if Medicaid accepts his application, then they will cover his whole stay and his disability check will stay in his account untouched.

Anyone here know anything about this?

Thanks in advance.....

So -if the patient is on state medicaid, (whatever it's called in Texas), the nursing home still gets the disability check turned over to them?

Re: Anyone Here w/Experience re: Missouri Medicaid and Nursing Homes?
I would say that the nursing home has the right to the disability check. Medicaid does not cover nearly all the costs associated with nursing home care, nursing homes are forced to accept these cut rate payments. Sounds to me like some greedy assed kids and grandkids want the disability checks, while allowing the tax payers to foot the bill for this persons care.

Yes they take the check and any other assets they can get. My aunt went in here in Mo.

Watch the meds they put them on or you are asking for problems.

You should consider caretakers.

Doesn't she get something? Like whatever's left over to buy new socks, robes and maybe even a small tv or other things that ultimately get misplaced?

Well, he really does need the skilled care right now....my daughter is his care-giver. This is his fourth stay at a nursing home, though...

I will make sure to have her check on his medications though, too....thanks for the advice....I'd forgotten that that is often a real issue! :)

The social worker did say that he would get $35 per month for spending money, so - yeah - I'd forgotten about that..
