In recent news, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) spoke about an issue in nursing homes as well as assisted living facilities on how the resident’s stimulus checks are being taken away from those who are on Medicare. The stimulus payments being made are not to be taken by homes in order to pay any expenses, as they belong to individual Americans who fit the guidelines for payment.
A spokesman from the Iowa Attorney General’s Office said that if the nursing home or assisted living facility has taken that money from you, you can contact your state attorney general to assist you in getting your funds back and filing a complaint with the FTC.
