Thank you so much for this website. My family applied for the Aid and Attendance for my father and paid an attorney $2000!! We were denied! Fortunately, Medicaid helped cover a portion of his nursing home expenses. My father passed away in April. We are now going to apply again for my mother as surviving spouse as we have had to place her in an assisted living facitility due to her dementia. I'm just getting started gathering the information for my mother's application. In applying for my mother should I use the claim number from my father's application or just leave it blank?
