Social Security will now start with-holding back child support from payment made to nursing home. He has no income and no way to pay the difference.
I am going to assume from your question that the nursing home resident is receiving Mediciad benefits. For patients who are on Medicaid in the nursing home, the nursing home is paid partially by the resident through the resident’s income and Medicaid pays the balance. The person who is representing the resident (health care agent/power of attorney) should contact the state’s Medicaid office to notify the office that there has been a change in the resident’s income.
