Is There Any Downside to Bringing a Medicaid Recipient Home From a Nursing Home?

  • January 15th, 2019
Q
My mother has been receiving Medicaid in a nursing home for four years. Now we want to bring her home (to her daughter's) for the remainder of her days. What is the disadvantage in doing so?
A

There should not be any disadvantage. Depending on your state, you may or may not be able to get some Medicaid-covered assistance for your mother at home. In some cases, even the family member providing the care can receive a stipend.
