My mother is a WWII veteran and is in a nursing home in TX. Her medicare entitlement will end shortly. I read somewhere that the VA will pay only $90 per month if the veteran is on medicaid. I am trying to determine if I should forego filing for medicaid and wait for a decision from the VA on the A&A application. She does not own a home but has a car. We placed her assests in a trust in 01/2007 and I am aware of the medicaid look back period. Her reduced monthly income is approximately $1200. I am leaning toward foregoing the medicaid process but would appeciate any guidance or suggestions. Thank you very much.
