My mother was discharged from nursing home in mid-month (April) to hospital ER, and then to hospice where she passed away a short time later. She was under Medicaid LT care . Nursing home was paid through end of April (with her SS funds from March). How do they handle refund? Back to SS? Sent to her estate/next of kin? Must they await Medicaid info first? SS should be notified by funeral home this week. I have not yet contacted nursing home business office. Thank you very much.
