True to her word, Michelle Cofano <> from the Florida Department of Elder Affairs emailed me today to confirm that she submitted her “Level of Care” report:

Hey David,
I just wanted to let you know I personally faxed the Level of Care this afternoon to the nursing home and I hand delivered the Level of Care to the Department of Children and Families. Hope this helps.

I replied to her (and copied Shelly at Woodland Terrace) with:

Dear Michelle,

Thank you so much. I really appreciate the time you spent on the phone with me yesterday, and it was very nice of you to confirm that this step has been completed.

Can you tell me what the next step in the Medicaid application approval process is?
