Protect Your Parent’s House from Being Sold to Pay Back Medicaid

Sold House in FL

When parents who were in an assisted living facility being paid for in part or in whole by Medicaid passes on, Medicaid may try to do what is called an estate recovery. Unless you and your parents take preventative measures before signing up for Medicaid, then you will find that Medicaid may have the right to seize all of your parent’s assets and liquidate them to pay for the costs of their care. Unless you do something to prevent it, this recovery of assets will include your parent’s house. But there is something you can do.

Most people know that Medicaid is the service that helps people to pay for part, or sometimes all, of the costs associated with assisted living. But will Medicaid also pay for in-home care services? Some people prefer to live at home as opposed to moving into a nursing home situation. Even though the person will be living at home, they still need some sort of financial assistance. Not everyone may be able to get assistance from family or friends.


Medicaid Planning Before and After a Loved One Enters a Nursing Home

Spouse in Nursing Home

In 2018, the average cost for a semi-private room in an American nursing home was $120,000.00 per year. With costs like that, it is easy to see why so many families have trouble getting their elderly loved ones into a decent facility.
