My mother just passed away this month and she has a blance of about $5000.00 in which Medicade initally refused to pay. I was the person who was writing her checks for her nursing home bills all along. At the time my mother went into the nursing home my brother and I were in the process of selling her assets. The process was to sell her assets and place the money from her assets into her checking account and then pay off her exhisting bills with the same checking account. Our reasoning was to show Medicade that we were crediting her account with her sold assets and then debiting her account with her bills being paid. We wanted to show good faith in the selling of her assets so we could obtain Medicade. Anyways, when it came time for Medicade to start paying for her nursing home bills they refused to pay the first two months because her checking account balance was over the $2000.00 limit but I argued that the $2000.00 limit should've been figured on her checking account low balance and not her high balance because certain checks had'nt been cashed by my mothers creditors at the time of the bank statements were given to Medicade. Also, it was assured to me verbably by the nursing home that I would'nt be liable for my mothers nursing home bills. So, am I liable to pay her nursing home balance because initally Medicade refused to pay the first two months?
