Medicaid is the federal program that will help to pay for your nursing home costs. It won’t pay for all of it. Each person who is in a nursing home and is on Medicaid has a patient responsibility or an amount of money that you’re supposed to pay to contribute to the cost of your care. And that comes out of your income, not out of your assets. Learn more on our YouTube Channel. Contact our office if you have any questions or are interested in learning more about Medicaid.
