their home is only worth 50,000 and they have 20,000 in bank and ira's. his truck is 20 years old and 200,000 miles on it and he really could use a newer more reliable truck. I wouldn't want to go across town in it. can he get newer truck, say maybe spend about $7,000 and not mess up medicaid? they owe about 3,000 on funeral plans it appears to me they can pay those off with the money they have.
