Will Medicaid Pay For Assisted Living Expenses?
by Elgrit Russell
I am in assisted living and will run out of funds in my fourth year. I can't sell my house and am renting it for an income until some day when the market changes. I am told if you pay for three full years, they will keep you.
What are the rules about paying the assisted living when all you have is SS and rent (minus taxes) and your house can't sell. Do they have to let you keep some money to pay personal bills. What happens? I am not going to a nursing home. Thank you.Answer:
Hi: Indeed, assisted living expenses (other than room and board costs) are paid by Medicaid in some states, if the person would otherwise qualify for Medicaid.
