My mid-80's parents have only SS Income, and no savings or assets other than an old car ... but their combined monthly SS Income (about $2,450) was too high for Medicaid, and they were turned down for this program. When long term care becomes a necessity how will we possibly pay for it? Thx in advance for any info ....

Thank you very much .... would the Shared Income Trust could get them qualified for Medicaid now, before they need LTC?

You go to an eldercare attorney in your parents' state who is knowledgeable about Medicaid. You set up a Miller Trust, sometimes called a Shared Income Trust; the money in the trust reverts to the State after the principals' deaths.
