Reduction in Nursing Hours Upheld by Appeals Court

If you or a loved one relies upon Medicaid to pay for private duty nursing, a significant case has happened in the past two weeks which may affect your care.  You already know that over the past few years, Ohio has been eliminating or cutting back on Medicaid funded nursing.


Medicaid Applications: Pitfalls to Avoid

For many families, placing a loved one in a nursing home is a traumatic and unwelcomed event.  In so many cases, the adult children of elderly parents are signing admission agreements to nursing homes that have a personal guarantee of payment - that if the nursing home doesn't get paid, the adult child will be personally responsible.  But these individuals are told, "Don't worry, Medicaid will pay once the money runs out."
