The cost of nursing home care may now exceed $10,000 a month. Who pays this bill?

If you have planned in advance with a properly designed Family Trust, your trust assets will be protected and you will be eligible for Medicaid. Once your assets outside of the Trust have met Medicaid's financial eligibility requirements, you will be eligible for Medicaid.

Otherwise, most of your life savings and assets will have to be used to pay for your care.
