24. No, it is that Medicaid won't be available after you've spent $$ you thought would be inheritance


Rule has been that you have to spend down your assets before qualify for Medicaid. You have to cash in life insurance policies you own, you have to pay the nursing home and otherwise buy things for yourself. Once you do that, Medicaid will pay for nursing home, plus your social security and pension go to nursing home.

Under new proposed rules, once you spend every dime of your loved one's one on the nursing home, they will discharge your parent or loved one to you -- they will not keep them b/c there will be no medicaid. They will get their social security and pension, and be in your home under your care until they die. That is what Price and GOP want.

Not to mention that nursing homes will close b/c lose patients. Only ones that will survive are private pay facilities.
