Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Yes, if the patient or their family cannot pay and they do not apply for long term care benefits through medicaid to cover the payment, the care center can evict the person, even though they are in need of care. So if the person is out of funds, you need to apply for medicaid for them and once approved medicaid would start paying the bills.
