My Mother was placed in an Illinois Nursing Home for the last two months. I am power of attorney for her and signed papers for the Nursing home care. I live in Donna TX. I paid all her bills for September from her checking account leaving only $420. I sent that amount to the Nursing Home. Medicaid just approved Mom and wants her to pay $1543 to the Nursing Home. I called and talked with Nursing Home Administer who told me to pay her bills and send all copies to Medicaid. She told me today, I would have to make payments to pay the rest that is owed for month of September and Part of Oct.
