Can you decline your veteran benefits to go on Medicaid
My dad has a Veteran's Pension and Aid and Assistance. However, that is not enough to cover the cost of his assisted living facility. His income with the pension/A&A is too high for Medicaid. Can he terminate his benefits and go on Medicaid (it would be a Medicaid waiver program which allows him to live in assisted living and not a nursing home). If not, he will be forced to move out of his assisted living facility and into a nursing home?
