You could pay for your own funeral with your assets.

Douglas, is it YOU who is trying to qualify for Medicaid?

I think one of the best ways to spend down is to engage a really experienced certified Eldercare attorney.

I THINK that paying for your parents' funerals would be looked upon as gifting.

Ah.

Um. You could call Medicaid and ask? I'm less confident that this would be an accepted use, but on the other hand I can't imagine it's a common ruse for divesting funds so perhaps they will look on it sympathetically.

Paying for their funerals is a perfectly legitimate use of your parents' assets, Douglas, if that's the question. Would you like to say a little more about the situation?
