The patient or someone designated by the patient must file a Medicaid application with the Division of Medical Assistance for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in order to determine if you are eligible for Medicaid. For additional questions/concerns, you may call the Medicaid Office at 800-841-2900.
Yes. Medicaid requires by law that the patient pay a portion of their monthly income to the nursing home less sixty dollars. The patient is allowed to keep $72.80 for personal expenses each month. Usually the patient’s Social Security and any pension amounts added together less $72.80 is the amount Medicaid requires the patient to pay the nursing home.
If a patient’s condition has improved to the point that services of a skilled professional such as a nurse or therapist are no longer needed, then, in most cases the Medicare Part A insurance will stop paying for the stay at the Skilled Nursing Facility. For example, if a patient suffered a fractured hip and with therapy reached their full therapeutic potential, required no skilled nursing services and yet remained in the nursing facility, Medicare Part A insurance would end on the last day of therapy.
