Yes, Medicaid frequently pays a portion of the bill for nursing home residents who have spent almost all their savings and whose monthly income does not cover the cost of care.

Some states have an income cap on gross income, and special income trusts must be set up to establish eligiblity in those states. Right now Medicaid is the only national program available to help pay for long-term care; Medicaid is the main source of payment for nursing homes. If a recipient owns property that property is subject to a lien for Medical Assistance.
