If my spouse is going into a nursing home, can they transfer all of their assets to me and qualify for Medicaid?

Question: If my spouse is going into a nursing home, can they transfer all of their assets to me and qualify for Medicaid?

Answer: If your spouse is going into the nursing home, they cannot transfer all of their assets to you and qualify for Medicaid. For Medicaid purposes if you are married and one person has to go into the nursing home you are required to spend down your assets to $110,000 before the spouse that’s in the nursing home will qualify for Medicaid.
