Medicaid does not pay 100% as such. Your SS and pension have to be used then Medicaid pays. And that is not the same amount a person pays privately. My Mom paid $9600 privately. When Mom went on Medicaid she paid $1700 and Medicaid paid about 2k. Mom was on Medicaid from July 1st to Sept 17 and owed Medicaid about $5800.
