Any Limitations on Gaming Medicaid System?

Medicaid System Favors Married Heterosexuals over Singles and Gays

I despise our gummint's socialist programs, including medicaid, particularly because they favor married heterosexual breeders over childfree singles and gays.

That said, if I were faced with a nursing-home situation for myself, I would be eager to game the system by marrying an old friend, putting a swimming pool in the house, etc, so as to enhance my ultimate benefit and any benefit to my heirs.

I am NOT speaking of engaging in any fraud or illegal activity, but merely gaming the socialist system, which, like marrying for a tax break or moving to Massachusetts if sick, is perfectly legal.

What limitations would is see to my policy? For example, can I marry, buy a house, and move in with my spouse the very day before I enter the nursing home?

I just want to thank you for this site. It answered my questions. I think many people that do research on the net take it for granted and when they find what they are looking for they forget "someone put time, money, etc into providing me with this information."

Thank you!
