    Cost of Last Illness is all unreimbursed medical expenses since the first of the month after you file for A&A. If you write $0 because you assume they will count those expenses, unfortunately, they will zero out your parent's account and consider it closed. You will only get reimbursed for those items which have been PAID by your parent's estate, so unpaid bills waiting for VA funds don't count, you must pay first - include proof of payment (can just be a statement from 1st of month after filing until day of passing - marked PAID The assisted living, home care company etc should be able to run a report like that for you very easily - and they are the ones who need to mark it paid.
