Caregiving Daughter Dear Caregiving, The roles and requirements for Medicaid eligibility for nursing home care are complicated and will vary according to the state where your parent lives. With that said, here's a general, simplified run- down of what it takes to qualify. Medicaid Eligibility Medicaid, the joint federal and state program that covers health care for the poor, is also the largest sin- gle payer of America's nursing home bills for seniors who don't have the resources to pay for their own care. Most people who enter nursing homes don't qualify for Medicaid at first, but pay for care either through long-term care insurance or out-of- pocket until they deplete their sav- nags and become eligible for Med- icaid. To qualify for Medicaid, your parent's income and assets will need to be under a certain level that's determined by their state. Most states require that a person have no more than about $2,000 in counta- ble assets that includes cash, savings, investments or other financial re- sources that can be turned into cash. Assets that aren't counted for el- igibility include their home if it's val- ued under $560,000 (this limit is higher - up to $840,000 - in some states), their personal possessions and household goods, one vehicle, prepaid funeral plans and a small amount of life insurance. But be aware that while your par- ent's home is not considered a Senior Savvy Cont page 5 IO ~ A D ......... 1 ~.~. :v=.~.~-~ ~:----=L.:2.2 £-.=2La---- --- committee members who said, "It's they hope to change that. amazing the stuffyou don't know."
