We are beginning the process to apply for A&A for my mother-in-law. Right now, she is paying to live in an assisted living facility from her own resources. By the family's calculations, she will literally be out of money in about 9 months, and we are also preparing an application for Medicaid. My question: If she should be approved for A&A, and then subsequently goes on Medicaid, will the A&A benefit continue to be paid directly to her? (A&A and her Social Security benefits combined would not cover her monthly expenses). Thanks much for any insight on this. If the A&A would have to be forfeited/surrendered because she was on Medicaid, we're wondering if we should even bother with the A&A application, given the time required to process the claim. Thanks again.
