Help for parents

Resolved Question:

Sept 03 my parents ask me to help them move near me from Florida. They also asked for help as they needed it so we agreed on money for moving them plus $150 a week to help them as they continue to need help. My mother went into nursing home 5 years ago . My father went into same one in November. At the first of the year I paid myself for all the work I have done and asked for Medcaid assistance. Will I have a problem because of this?

Welcome to Just Answer. I am here to help you resolve your tax and finance concerns. Please feel free to ask anytime you need extra help.

The only potential problem area is that you may be questioned about the money you paid yourself for the "work I have done". If this is deemed appropriate for their care then it will be allowed. You should be sure you have records to substantiate everything if it is questioned. If it is not allowed you may be asked to repay this to the nursing home before Medicaid will take over the bills.

Although there is no specific wording needed, you should detail, on a weekly basis, the hours spent and the costs you incurred. Then they will be able to see the efforts behind this. They will compare it to the cost of getting outside help and, if reasonable, allow it.
