Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
Is this just a bureaucratic issue, and will Medicare cover this cost, or did they formally deny? Please advise!
Thank you for your patience. To answer directly, if you or your mother cannot cover the bill and cannot pay for the treatment, then yes, your mother can be made to leave. The nursing home has no legal duty to provide services in a non-emergency situation so if they are not going to be paid for the services they provide, they can discharge your parent and suggest that you find other housing or an another home for her to reside in.
