Mom has been in a nursing home for almost 4 years....we paid for her care until there was no money left and then applied for Institutional Medicaid for her. Her home, which is valued at 40,000. (perhaps less) was excluded from assets. My brother has taken the sole responsibility of paying for taxes, insurance and repairs etc...since she has been in the NH, and also lives there. Will Medicaid use the value of the home as an asset after she has passed and try to recoup monies? Forcing us to sell the home and repay the proceeds? Now leaving my brother without a home?
