Why won't Medicaid pay for assisted living?

It doesn't make any sense since it is usually cheaper than a nursing home and better for the patient. I don't want mom in a nursing home, I want her to have a nice apartment in assisted living.

It is best to check with your State Medicaid program, as benefits vary by state as does eligibility. You can call 800-Medicare and ask for your State's Medicaid. Your Department of Social and Health Services can also address your questions.

I think it is all political, I agree it's not logical at all!
