My Dad is 79 years old. Today I received a bill in the mail for HIS treatment at Berthoud Living Center where he was placed in by the hospital to recover from surgery. This bill is for $17,733 dollars, it is addressed to ME as the "responsible party," and they said if I don't pay they will hand it over to collection. Medicare has already paid this facility nearly $22,000. The facility claims that I am personally responsible for my Dad's bills and they will sue me. They even went as far as requiring him to sign over his VA and Social Security benefits to them, despite the fact that he is a dementia patient and does not understand. He is on three different medications for dementia and was at the time they made him sign. I only found out that they literally STOLE from him yesterday. He was NEVER to stay there as a permanent resident and they KNOW that. However, because he was denied Medicaid they claim it was in their rights to take his Social Security and VA Pension. Next month, he will not be able to cover his monthly bills. He has life insurance policies that need to be paid and many other things including a legal debt of over $50,000 thanks to his ex-wife who took out loans and credit cards in his name. Requiring a family member to agree to be the financially responsible party for a nursing home resident is illegal under federal law, in Title 42 of the Code of Federal Regulations, section 483.12(d)(2). Under this law, nursing homes are not even supposed to ask if a family member wants to become a responsible party. Nonetheless, some nursing home agreements contain fine print that claims to make a responsible party or cosigner personally responsible for the resident's bills. If a nursing home attempts to enforce such an agreement, the person who signed the papers may need legal help to get out from under the nursing home's claim. What they are doing to ME and MY FAMILY is illegal. Our family is now devastated thanks to this greedy company. I do not have the money for an attorney, I cannot work to earn the money because my Dad requires constant supervision. I do not know what we will do.


Response: I'm so sorry to hear this. We are looking for a facility for my 90 year old Grandfather. Reading your comment was very interesting. Try getting a hold of Channel 7 or Channel 9 news, I'm sure they would help you.



Description of Berthoud Living Center in BERTHOUD, CO

Number of Beds : 76

Senator John Glenn once said, “Too many people, when they get old, think they have to live by the calendar.” A rejection of ‘calendar living’ perfectly describes the kind of world the senior living industry creates for millions of Americans over 55. Senior living is a lifestyle of personal choice. Those in senior living communities are never beholden to the calendar. They are free to be as active or inactive as they wish. If they want to relax and watch TV, they are free to do that, too. If they are healthy and independent and wish only to take advantage of fine housing, home-cooked meals, and cleaning services, they are free to do so. If they need assistance with some aspects of daily living, that type of community is available, too. Senior living also includes housing for those who require daily medical care as well as care for seniors who want to stay in their own homes. A well-organized system of care, senior living welcomes you for what YOU want to do.
