  • When applying for Mo. Medicaid be sure to have someone assist you with all parts of the application.  If you forget an area it could be rejected and you will have to start the process over.

  • If you applied before and was turned down when living at home, that does not mean you will be denied in the nursing home setting.

  • There is a program called Division of Assets , which helps the community spouse keep half of their assets so they can continue living in their own home.

  • The Nursing Home does not receive your Social Security check.  Your check continues to go into your bank account and you will receive a statement from the facility for your stay.

  • Your home and vehicle are exempt for two years.  This allows ample time for someone to rehabilitate and return home.

  • Here at Lewis County Nursing Home the Social Service Department can assist with the Medicaid application and we have all the necessary forms to complete the process.
