On talking to staff member at the nursing home, she suggested getting a funeral trust to get it under $2,000. What's the best way to go about getting a trust? We will reapply after his bank balance. The way I understand it is, we can do this even though we filed for Medicaid because we were rejected and have to reapply. That is legal isn't it?
He is in rehab and doesn't plan on staying there long-term. We plan on getting him an apartment and using CICOA services after he is out of the home.

This is what I just went thru. Mom has a small life insurance policy that I cashed in for about $11,000. I deposited it in Mom's account. I went to our local Funeral home and I made funeral arrangements and the director set up a Trust. You can also take cash and set up one. The director will give you paperwork for Medicaid showing the Trust.

I have no experience at all with VA, but I can bump question back to the first page. My recommendation would be to consult with an eldercare attorney that is experienced with VA. Good luck!
