The approach to and handling of nursing home contracts and Medical Assistance (Medicaid) applications for long-term care skilled nursing benefits cannot be left to chance, and certainly should not be left solely in the hands of nursing home employees. Why? Because the resident’s personal and financial destiny is literally at stake (more so than the average person may comprehend), and because while not immediately obvious, the resident’s interests and the nursing home’s interests are not the same. Every set of circumstances is different; however, extreme caution and legal representation is always advised when the time for nursing home admission and a Medicaid application arises.
