Hi and welcome to JA.Ray here to help you.
Yes the person on medicaid can qualify for skilled care here if they need it.They are already financially approved and eligible and the Nevada medicaid will pay the facility directly for care.The SSI here will b e paid directly to the skilled nursing home as the person's contribution to their care. I n this matter they can be transferred to a skilled letter facility.
This should not be a problem, Nevada medicaid will cover the cost of care.
You can contact the Nevada Long Term Care Ombudsman to help you locate a skilled facility and with transfer of the patient.
