Mom is going into nursing home, can dad buy a truck now and mom still qualify for medicaid?
their home is only worth 50,000 and they have 20,000 in bank and ira's. his truck is 20 years old and 200,000 miles on it and he really could use a newer more reliable truck. I wouldn't want to go across town in it. can he get newer truck, say maybe spend about $7,000 and not mess up medicaid? they owe about 3,000 on funeral plans it appears to me they can pay those off with the money they have.
