    ...she lived in Texas. She ended up in a nursing facility in the end for a few weeks. She was on Medicaid. Even though I had nothing to do with this situation and live in California (from Colorado...never lived in Texas)...both the nursing home and the state of Texas pressured me to pay them back for her Medicaid costs while in that nursing home. No matter what I did, they kept coming at me. My mom had nothing...no estate...nothing. She was living in her brother's home.

    After consulting lawyers in California I finally decided just to pay off the state of Texas and that nursing home (in Longview, TX) as they were about to sue me and go after what I own. I doubt it would have worked, however, it would have costed me several $10's of thousand of dollars to defend myself.  It was simply less expensive to pay them off.

    This is a standard ploy...make it more expensive for you to defend yourself against what isn't really legal than to just pay they off. I must admit, it is a strategy that works!...
