In California, this program is called Medi-Cal. It assists people with little to no financial resources, but it is also the government program that is utilized by many seniors to pay for long-term care because Medicare will not pay for it.
Medi-Cal is not just for seniors who have been struggling financially all of their lives. You can work hard and earn a good income, subsequently retiring with a significant nest egg and still find yourself looking for Medi-Cal eligibility.
The average annual expense for a year in a private room in a nursing home in California exceeds $100,000, and prices are rising all the time. In the San Jose area, the average annual cost for a private room is $134,138.
It is possible to qualify for Medi-Cal and to preserve your resources. There are assets that are not counted, such as your home, your vehicle, and personal possessions. And, if you were to enter a nursing home, your spouse could keep his or her half of the assets up to a particular limit.
