Continued Medicaid eligibility. What can I spend down my monthly income on to bring my cash balance down to 2000 or less? Can I give nieces and nephew birthday presents and if so how much? Can I buy a tombstone for my plot in the cemetery? If so how much? I live very frugally and do not have many expenses..rent, food, transportation are my main expenses but do not consume all of my monthly income. Thank you for any and all replies.
